The Greater Valley YMCA's mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. At the GVY, we are more than just a gym; we are a nonprofit providing opportunities for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Every community member is served at the Y, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or ability to pay. Day in and day out, we are here for our neighbors, creating healthy, connected and secure children, families and adults.
The Greater Valley YMCA (GVY) is a mission-driven nonprofit, providing essential services and programs for all members of our communities. We serve the entire Lehigh Valley, with Branches in the communities of Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton/Phillipsburg, Nazareth, those comprising the Slate Belt region, Catasauqua and Northampton. Our doors are open to all, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or ability to pay--no child or family is turned away due to financial hardship. In 2021, we awarded over $516,000 in financial assistance and subsidy to community members in need. We currently offer the following essential programs: Preschool Programming, Essential Child Care, Fitness and Wellness Classes (with virtual options), Social Responsibility Programs, Chronic Disease Prevention Programming, Allentown Warming Station for our neighbors experiencing homelessness, Bethlehem Affordable Housing Program, Senior Connection Programs and so much more.
