KEEPING YOU INFORMED ON ALL THINGS YMCA!
These are unprecedented times with unprecedented challenges, but we are in it with you until the end and we’re committed to building community strength during this health crisis.
Since our founding, we have met the challenges our community is facing. From the need to serve young people in the industrial revolution to becoming a leader in child care when more parents had to work to shuffling programs after 9/11, we have been there for the community.
Today is no different.
The nature of this virus, and how it spreads, presents significant challenges for the Y and our community. In accordance with recent updates from the CDC, Governor Chris Sununu, and state and local government agencies we are making adjustments to our Y programs and services until further notice.
Please check back here often for updates as we gain more information from our state and local leaders. Further detail and communications about our closure and how we are addressing the needs of our community during this health crisis can be found on our YMCA Alerts page.
Stay Well. Stay Safe. Stay With Us.
Based on continued recommendations from the CDC, state and local health officials and area government agencies, we must extend our temporary suspension of all YMCA facility access and programs until further notice.
This includes facility access, group fitness classes and wellness programs in all YMCA facilities.
Visit our Beyond Our Walls web page. You will find a set of virtual tools, open-air resources, and information you can put to use while we all comply with public health efforts. It’s our way of helping you to stay active, healthy and connected in your own home, and on your own time.

The significant impact we have on individuals, children, families and those who need us most is dependent on our program and membership fees. Your membership fees enable our Y to help the community, support our employees and remain strong through these extraordinary circumstances.
The impact you help our Y make as a member lasts a lifetime.
