The Y is the nation's leading nonprofit organization committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The Family Y has been listening and responding to our communities most critical needs for over 150 years. Today, we fulfill the needs with nine Y locations, an 88-acre camp on Lake Thurmond, two licensed childcare centers and 33 after-school program sites in Richmond and Aiken counties.
We want our community to see the impact we make each year in the programs and services offered at The Family Y. As you search through our catalog, you will see each program and service is created to reach you through three areas of focus: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Every Family Y location touches its community in these areas. We invite you to look at the many life-changing opportunities offered at each location..
