Building for the Future

At the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth, we believe in a better future for all. With the rising costs of living in our city, people are experiencing challenges: less time with their families, less time to focus on healthy activities, and disconnection from the community. The Y is here to help change that.

We believe in helping children and families thrive through our family programming, childcare services and active programming. We believe in promoting healthy living and make sure that no one is ever turned away from a YMCA experience due to an inability to pay.

The YMCA fosters belonging and connection in every community we serve.

We envision stronger, more hopeful and caring communities that result in:

  • Strong and connected families
  • Resilient children who thrive and lead healthy, long lives
  • Teens who are confident with a strong sense of belonging
  • Healthy, engaged seniors
  • Motivated adults that take charge of their health and get active
