Our YMCA is a non-profit organization that works collaboratively with community partners to improve the lives of children, adults, families, and the entire community. Our purpose is to strengthen and enrich the development of individuals and families through quality programs and services that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Integral to everything that we do are our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our Y serves people of all backgrounds, ages, capabilities and income levels, providing financial assistance to those in need.
Encouraging, supporting and improving healthy living habits, among our members and throughout the community, are central to our purpose. Our work also focuses on youth development through a wide variety of programs such as child care, day camps, swim lessons, and organized youth sports.
Financial assistance may be available for you and your entire family to join, thanks to the generosity of our donors. The Y uses 100 percent of donor contributions to provide financial assistance for members and to subsidize a wide range of mission programs. Our goal is to provide financial assistance to anyone who needs it to participate.
For more than 145 years, the Cumberland YMCA has provided programs and services that promote lifelong personal growth and the balanced development of spirit, mind, and body. We are proud to be a part of the nation’s largest non-profit community service organization, working to meet the health and social service needs of the residents of our Western Maryland community.
The Cumberland YMCA is made up of people of all ages and all walks of life who are working side by side to strengthen the community. Our core values are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. They guide everything we do and as a result, we value all lives who enter through our doors and exist in our community. We condemn any racist behaviors at a personal and corporate level or any racist actions.
