OUR HISTORY

The Young men’s Christian Association is the largest not-for-profit community service organization in the United States. YMCAs are involved in 10,000 communities across the nation. YMCAs are working in 120 countries, and serving over 30 million people. The YMCA is an organization that has influenced many lives since its formation. Many other service organizations such as Gideon’s International, Boy Scouts of America, and Campfire Girls have their roots at YMCAs. The YMCA organization has survived through world wars and depressions and continues to impact the lives of people all over the world.

The first YMCA in Grays Harbor formed in 1902. The Hoquiam and Aberdeen YMCAs operated independently until December 1998 when they decided to unite and become the YMCA of Grays Harbor. The unification of these two YMCAs allowed the construction of a new 57,000 square foot facility, which is a major improvement over the old facilities.
