Welcome to the newly expanded Valley Points Family YMCA!

In May of 2016, the Valley Points Family YMCA and the Allegheny Valley YMCA came together in partnership to see how we can better serve the Alle-Kiski river valley region.  We immediately found that we can maximize our resources and more importantly the impact we have on our neighbors if we consolidate our efforts.

Collectively, our YMCAs have been positively impacting lives throughout the Alle-Kiski Valley region since 1901. As we enter this new chapter in our Y's history, our staff team and Board of Directors are prepared to take our service to the community to even higher levels. After all, strengthening the foundations of community is at the heart of our cause. Through intentional focus in the areas of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility we are able to add the necessary heartbeat that brings our cause to life.

When I joined the Valley Points Family YMCA staff team in 2005 and then the Allegheny Valley YMCA team in 2016, I was struck by how the mixture of members, staff, volunteers and community made the Y feel like a second home. In fact, we are a family. Our Y is stronger because the blend of goals, talents, needs, interests, values and experience you find here provide a support system that is unique to us. We are better because of you.

To take our Y to new heights, it will take all of us embracing the mission of the Y and our cause. Countless times I have heard people talk about our YMCA branch locations and say, “the Y is the best secret in town.” It is time that we let the secret out so the Y can impact more youth, more families and more adults in amazing ways. We are more than a gym, a fitness center, a child care program or a sport leaguewe are the Y! From exercise to education, preschool to preventive health, pickleball to volunteerism, the Y doesn’t just strengthen our bodies, it strengthens our community.

Thank you for being a part of our Y. If you have feedback or suggestions on how we can better serve you or the community, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your ideas. You can reach me directly via email or by phone at 724-335-9191.

Respectfully,
