The YMCA has served Wichita Falls and the surrounding communities since 1944 and is as committed today as it was then to enhancing the quality of life for people of all ages, background, nationalities and religions. For more than sixty years, thousands of children, adults and families have benefited spiritually, mentally and physically through local YMCA programs. Over that time, we have grown from a single downtown storefront to four branches serving the entire city.
Every day, the YMCA provides care for over 400 children through our Early Childhood and After School programs. More than 3,500 boys and girls participate in youth sports activities, such as baseball, basketball, indoor soccer, gymnastics and swim lessons. Seniors and adults also improve their health and wellness through YMCA activities and classes designed especially for them.
We are proud of our success over the years and are extremely grateful for the thousands of volunteers and contributions that made it possible. We are excited about the future as well, but also recognize that we must prepare now for the challenges we continue to face.
