Though our facilities are closed to the public in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we continue to serve our community in many life-sustaining ways. The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh has always been an organization that walks in the direction of a challenge. For 166 years, we have worked hand in hand with our volunteers and donors to put our mission of serving others into action. Now more than ever, it is time to face these significant challenges head-on and focus on those who need us most.
A Special Message From Kevin Bolding, CEO
Join us for a stronger community. For a better us.
Every day The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh does more than provide facilities and programs that create community. We work to close the achievement gap, eliminate health disparities, ensure food security and provide aid to financially struggling families. The coming weeks will deliver new challenges for our community. When they do, rest assured that your Y will be caring for those who need us most.
