In Orange County, no other place has a 100+ year legacy of learning and laughter with youth and adult programs like the Anaheim Family YMCA. New generations are discovering what locals have known for years — this is the best place for youth swim classes, sports programs, STEM and education courses, performing and visual arts, day and resident camps, adaptive programs for special needs teens and adults, plus recreation choices for pre-school to senior citizens. Our growing diversity of programs ensures we’re one of the best donation causes in the community, and helps us give safe options to over 7,000 kids each day after school. Whether you join for the fun, or give to the cause, you’re welcomed at the Anaheim Family YMCA.


Sure, Anaheim is our first name, but it’s not the only place that we offer ways for you and your kids to experience learning, sports and camps. See your options in Anaheim, Stanton, Cypress, La Palma, Big Bear/Arrowhead, and Catalina Island.

Thank you to everyone that supported the Anaheim Family YMCA providing family food so no one goes to sleep hungry. Because of your generosity we raised $14,953 to feed families on Giving Tuesday Now!
We also want to express our deep gratitude to those donors who have been donating resources, supplies and time since the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Your support allows us to continue working in our community and for that we would like to say THANK YOU!

You may have heard that May 5th is GivingTuesdayNow. It is a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to unprecedented NEED caused by COVID-19.
When there is a need the Y tries to fill it! With 3,000 meals a day served during our after school program, we knew a lot of kids were going to go to bed hungry with schools being closed and we couldn’t let that happen.

We opened up our doors on March 16th and handed out 50 meals to families in need. By the end of the week we were up to 800 meals a day and running out of food.

Fast forward to today, with the help of community partners providing financial resources, food and supplies we are offering more than 30,000 meals. We hope to continue to grow and serve even more meals to families in need. Please consider donating to the Y for #GivingTuesdayNow.

Keep healthy at home. Take advantage of the extra time together by role modeling healthy eating and active living, which increases the likelihood that young people will do the same! ⠀

As we adjust to being home for long periods of time, decrease the risk of mindless eating by serving healthy snacks and eliminating highly processed foods. #anaheimymca
