BUILDING A HEALTHY COMMUNITY
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The YMCA is challenging people, especially children and teens to accept and demonstrate positive values. The five core values of the YMCA of Selma-Dallas County are emphasized in all programs: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Caring and Faith. Through our programs and the modeling of these values, the YMCA continues to meet the needs of our ever-changing community.
We impact over 8,000 people annually.Everyone is welcome at the new YMCA.Together, the nation’s more than 2,500 YMCAs are the largest not-for-profit community service organizations in America, working to meet the health and social service needs of 18.9 million men, women and children in 10,000 communities in the United States. Ys are for people of all faiths, races, abilities, ages and incomes. No one is turned away for inability to pay. YMCAs’ strength is in the people they bring together.
YMCAs stretch beyond the United States. YMCAs are at work in more than 120 countries around the world, serving more than 45 million people. About 230 U.S. YMCAs maintain relationships with Ys in other countries. So the YMCA really does build strong kids, strong families and strong communities — worldwide.
The YMCA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for Youth Development, for Healthy living and for Social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
