For Youth Development
For Healthy Living
For Social Responsibility

Welcome to the

Michiana Family YMCA

The Michiana Family YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.


Join us for a week of festivities as we celebrate our cause! On Sunday, March 29, we will kick off our annual Y Celebration Week, raising money for our mission with the theme Building Stronger Communities.


Greatest Chefs of Michiana Saturday, February 28, 2015 Chefs from Michiana's top restaurants have been teamed with a local "celebrity" to help the Y serve up a helping of life-changing programs to kids and families. Together, they will create a new dish to be featured at the chef's restaurant during the month of February.

Customers are encouraged to try all of the dishes, and vote for their favorite. The signature dishes, chefs, and celebrities will be featured at a gala event taking place at the Century Center in South Bend.

Last year’s event raised $250,000 to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being, and give back to our neighbors in need.

Tickets for the evening are now available; voting has already begun.
