At the YMCA, our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. 

Our vision is for a vital and significant force building strong, thriving and equitable communities dedicated to the health and well-being of all. We are a welcoming place for all and our programs reflect that commitment.

The Y is one of only a few non-profit organizations embedded throughout the community and positioned to help address inequity and social determinants of health while also pivoting and responding to changing community needs and environments.

Our 2023-2026 Strategic Plan

Charting Our Path to a Better Future is the YMCA of Metro Denver's 2023-2026 Strategic Plan and builds on the work of our One Mission, One Vision plan. In this video, we reflect on our previous plan and look ahead to the pillars that will guide us as an organization to improve the services and experiences that improve spirit, mind and body.
