Our YMCA

The Ohio Valley YMCA includes four branches serving over 11,000 members in the cities of East Liverpool, Calcutta, Steubenville, Toronto and their surrounding areas. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grown and thrive.

Our Mission

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals and communities, we must be focused and accountable. At the Y, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in the areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.

Our Impact is Felt Everyday

With a mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all, our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.
