Lincoln County Family YMCA & Sally's YMCA
The Y is committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. Working locally, they focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being and inspiring action in and across communities.

The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.

The YMCA is one of Lincoln County’s leading non-profits, acting as a catalyst for community transformation through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

Through our two local branches, the Lincoln County YMCA and Sally’s YMCA, we serve nearly 25,000 unique individuals annually through our programs, facilities, and services.
While our Ys are well-known as best-in-class fitness centers, the leader in swim education, and our community’s largest child care provider, our vast community impact is less well-known.

In 2019, the Y provided just over $1.1 million in support and services to kids and families-in-need in Lincoln County.
