We’re Changing How We Change Houston

The YMCA of Greater Houston was founded as a place where all people could find hope, fellowship, and healing. These have been difficult and uncertain times for our country, our city and our YMCA. Now, we are challenged to find new ways to transform membership to not only meet the needs of our members, but to also address critical community issues and keep our organization thriving for years to come. ​

The YMCA is not just a place, we are a purpose, and being a member of the YMCA is not just about buildings and programs, it is about being a part of something bigger than all of us.

Spark Change In Your Community

Impact Membership

An Impact Membership provides opportunity for ALL to advocate for the most vulnerable among us and enables the Y to deepen their role as a community-impact organization committed to addressing inequities, food insecurity, health disparities, social isolation, learning loss and more.

A $25 monthly Impact Membership will help to:

Isolation and loneliness are enduring issues that have been magnified by the pandemic. That’s why the Y continues to unite neighborhoods and build meaningful human relationships for seniors, teens and at-risk individuals through initiatives such as senior well-being calls, virtual engagement, and teen opportunities.

The Y helps create inclusive communities and ensures everyone has equal opportunity.


Our Y provides children and adults with disabilities the chance to play sports in a safe, fun atmosphere.

The Y is committed to be a source of strength and encouragement to all we serve. Programs such as our Refugee Resettlement program, Immigration Legal Services and The Trafficked Persons Assistance Program are restoring hope and providing protection, education, jobs and mentorship to our community’s most vulnerable.

Through a variety of programs designed to spark real change in our youth, we believe we positively impact children in ways no other organization can. From ensuring younger children are set for success, college and career preparedness, to teaching the art of global diplomacy, we are elevating how youth see themselves and what they can accomplish.

Getting Ready for a Healthy, Safe and FUN Summer!

Summertime means longer days, beach vacations, summer camp, swimming pools and kids out of school. Regular physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle in every season. The hotter summer weather can make it difficult to exercise outdoors and get the whole family involved.

Join the YMCA of Greater Houston as we discuss ways to keep your summer HEALTHY, SAFE and FUN! In this webinar Mell Llanca, Regional Healthy Living Director of the Katy Area, will discuss safe summer activities that are suitable for the entire family! You will also get information on family water safety from Armando Canelon, Youth Development Director of Aquatics of the Trotter Family YMCA.  You’ll walk away with new found healthy advice on how you can avoid unnecessary risks this summer while still having fun and staying healthy!
