Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Through the tradition of excellence and service, we support our community by providing programs that strengthen a healthy mind, body, and spirit.​

Strengthening the foundations of our community

We are a powerful association joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social changes can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. Every day, we work to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

For Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
For Healthy Living: Improving the nation’s health and well-being.
For Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

A community where every person can thrive.​

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Lakeland Hills Family YMCA comprises people of all ages and from every walk of life working side-by-side to strengthen our communities. Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race, sexual orientation, body type/shape, physical and mental well-being, and any other dimensions of diversity has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity. This is what we mean when we say we are “FOR ALL.” Our core values are caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility – they guide everything we do.
