History and Mission


Decatur Family YMCA Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

140 Years of Firsts

The history of the Decatur Family YMCA began over 140 years ago in 1877. Over the years, we've had 8 locations. The Decatur Family YMCA is one of Decatur and Macon Counties leading non-profit, community services organizations.

From advocacy to childcare, disease prevention to athletics, soccer to swim lessons, everything we do strengthens our neighborhoods and the people who live here.

We invite you to view our historical timeline in our lobby which chronicles our programs and community impact.
