We’re not only part of the Indianapolis community, we’re also a leader.

And to that end, we want to be both a catalyst for healthy change, as well as a resource for those who need our assistance. We provide tools and services to help address a variety of critical social issues: Child welfare, employment, housing, education and substance abuse. As part of the worldwide YMCA network, we can bring together people like few other organizations, building awareness for different cultures and pooling resources from around the globe. And we’re a widely-respected advocate for the community, leading grassroots campaigns and influencing public policy to affect positive change.
