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 Strategic Road Map

In 2019, we developed a Strategic Road Map to guide the YMCA of Metro Denver on our four-year path to further meet our vision and mission, focus our impacts in the short- and long-term and build organizational capacity.
