Since our inception, the YMCA of Catawba Valley has been guided by its Christian mission and values to strengthen the foundations of our community and nurture the potential of those men, women and children who make up the diverse and culture rich environment our wonderful community is built apon. As a leading nonprofit dedicated to meeting community needs, we engage people across several counties, giving more than 200,000 of our neighbors and children the chance to learn, grow and thrive in a welcoming atmostphere. No, we're not just a gym - we are so much more.

Our membership is 25,000 strong, and spread across our three Catawba County facility locations. While our programs and facilities are always based on the unique needs and interests of our communities, every Y has one thing in common: our people. The volunteers, staff, members and doners of the Y are all united by a deep commitment to strengthening our communities. We invite you to join us and help continue to grow your community.
