Mission Statement

The mission of the YMCA of Metropolitan Denver is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Organization History

In the late 1800s, Denver was an emerging city on the wild frontier. People were coming west in search of better living and new meaning.

To bring these people together, a group of 13 men and 3 women gathered to form a chapter of the international YMCA. The Denver Y provided a home for people looking for companionship and connections, and a support system of community and friendships.

In this new city in the West, the Y created a foundation of care, honesty, respect, and responsibility that people could count on, and build from.

Now, 141 years later, the YMCA of Metropolitan continues to be a gathering place for today's families and a foundation of values for the next generation.

"You are all angels. You change lives. You make a difference. No matter where my life takes me from here, I can assure each and every one of you that I appreciate you more than I can express. The bottom line is, with or without knowing it, you all collectively provide that one intangible element that can save a person's life: Hope. Thank you!" - Christopher Bussey, YMCA member
