Here for Atlanta,
Here for Good

Effective Tuesday, March 17th, all YMCA facilities are closed in order to protect the safety of our members and our community.

The Y is so much more than a gym, we are a connected community and service organization. And now more than ever before, we feel the weight of our responsibility to our communities, the children, families and seniors we serve, and to you. Together, we will face these difficult challenges.

HOW THE Y IS HELPING...

For 162 years, the YMCA of Metro Atlanta has worked to meet the critical needs of our communities. Today, the needs are more urgent than ever. We have mobilized our network, facilities, and partners to launch three specific initiatives that will be crucial in the coming weeks: childcare support for healthcare workers, first responders and those on the frontlines of COVID-19; expanded hunger relief programs; and Operation R.E.A.C.H. to support members in high risk groups

CHILDCARE FOR FIRST RESPONDERS

We are activating our YMCA branch locations to deliver childcare for thousands of healthcare workers and emergency responders on the frontlines of COVID-19. Based on demand, we will be able to serve almost 2,000 children daily. This program allows hospitals and emergency services to remain fully staffed in order to protect and care for our community.

HUNGER RELIEF

We are distributing meals for early learners, families and seniors at YMCA sites, expanding our food pantries and partnering to provide additional food distribution programs. In our first three days alone, we distributed meals to more than 4,000 families and seniors. This number grows daily.

OPERATION R.E.A.C.H.

We have implemented Operation R.E.A.C.H. - Reach out, Encourage, Activate, Connect and Honor - to connect with and engage our seniors and vulnerable groups during this difficult time, offering resources and support to keep them connected and healthy.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The Y can’t provide these necessary services without your support. We don’t know how long this crisis will last, and we need your help to ensure we have the resources needed to deliver these crucial initiatives for as long as they are needed. Here’s how YOU can help...

MEMBER RESOURCES

The Y is here for you – no matter where you are. While we cannot serve you in person, we are working hard to provide virtual resources to keep you and your family active, engaged and thriving.

Thank you for being part of the Y family! We look forward to opening the Y again as soon as the health and safety of our community can be assured. Please take care of yourself and one another. Our community is strong, and together, we will get through this.
