For more than 100 years, the YMCA of Northwest Florida has served Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, creating opportunities for men, women and children of all ages and backgrounds to come together to learn, grow and thrive. Through our programs, each year more than 10,000 people have a chance to enrich their spirit, mind and body. 

As the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening our community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, we welcome a diverse membership that includes all ages, genders, races, religions, abilities and incomes. At the Y, you can make new friends, renew old friendships and help make Northwest Florida a better place to live.
