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.

The Greater Valley YMCA and other nonprofits are social and economic drivers in PA. Nonprofits have a workforce of over 807,000 employees, generate $116.7 billion in annual revenue, and serve millions of PA residents

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has not designated relief for nonprofit organizations that partner with the state to provide government-mandated and community-based services. During the pandemic, the Y has seen the demand for our services increase exponentially. We respectfully ask the state to consider nonprofit support.
