Annual Campaign 

Our members and friends call us their Y. We call them our greatest resource—the thousands of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive. Each year we raise funds as a branch and as an association to ensure we are able to carry out our mission: to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Through Annual Campaign we are able to offer Scholarships, free swim lessons, outreach programming and so much more to families in need. Funds raised at each branch stay in their local community to help grow and support families close to home.

Reach & Rise® 

Reach & Rise® is a national YMCA program designed to build a better future for youth by helping them reach their full potential through the support of caring adults. Reach & Rise® is a free, one-to-one youth mentoring program that was established to provide young people in our community with positive adult relationships. Each adult is matched with a young person who they meet with once a week. Visit our website here for more information on this great program. 

For more information about the Reach & Rise® program, please contact Debra Rockmore at 817-534-1591 or email [email protected].


Sports Coaches & Referees

Though not all locations offer sports programs, there are many locations that do and could use your help and expertise!
