About Us


The Greater Valley YMCA is a volunteer-led, nonprofit, community organization. The Y is committed to strengthening community by positively changing lives every day. At each of our branches, we concentrate our efforts in three areas: Healthy Living, Youth Development, and Social Responsibility. And we do so in a way that upholds the Y’s traditional family values of Respect, Responsibility, Caring, and Honesty.


For over 100 years, the Y has made tangible differences in the communities of Allentown, Bethlehem, Catasauqua, Easton, Forks, Nazareth, those comprising the Slate Belt region and the Lehigh Valley as a whole. Founded as individual YMCAs as early as 1897, the following branches of the Greater Valley Y merged together between 2010 and 2015: the Nazareth YMCA, the Suburban North Family YMCA, the Family YMCA of Easton, Phillipsburg & Vicinity and the Bethlehem YMCA. In 2014, the Forks YMCA Education Center was established. The Slate Belt branch was opened in 2015. In January 2017, the Allentown YMCA joined the Greater Valley YMCA.

A great day to celebrate with 125 of our friends. The 50th Annual Father Son Breakfast.

In February of 2018, Clayton realized he needed a lifestyle change. After numerous doctor’s appointments dealing with health issues like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea, Clayton realized that without changing his ways he was at risk for a life threatening illness. Clayton reflected on this period of his life stating, “I was on a path to live a short life.” Clayton began to reexamine his eating habits and joined the Y, visiting five to seven days weekly working out and developing healthier habits. He found the Y staff supportive of his weight loss and wellness goals, and found a new Y family that rallied around this new life chapter. “The Y has been my home away from home,” he remarked, “from the bottom of my heart, I am truly humbled.” Almost a year later, Clayton continues on a healthier path and has lost over 100 pounds.

Thanks to the Y’s financial assistance program, Clayton was able to pursue his health goals surrounded by motivating staff, members and health champions. The Y is here supporting all on their health journeys, regardless of background or financial ability.
