Local Impact

Since the YMCA of Metro Atlanta was founded in1858, we have built programs that foster community, address critical needs, and empower individuals to achieve their full potential. The Y remains relevant in our local community only because we continually adapt along with the ever-changing needs of our neighborhoods. 

Powered by an exceptional team of dedicated staff and volunteers, The Y works each day to be a community resource, listening to neighborhoods’ unique challenges, delivering transformative programs, and living out our vision of championing communities where all people belong.  

Our annual Impact Report shares stories of transformation and progress that result from this work. Take a look at the 2021 Impact Report below, or download a printable copy here.

Anchored in more than 10,000 neighborhoods around the country, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change. 

As the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to helping people and communities to learn, grow and thrive, our contributions are both far-reaching and intimate—from influencing our nation’s culture during times of profound social change to the individual support we provide an adult learning to read. 
 
By nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation’s health and well-being, and supporting and serving our neighbors, the Y ensures that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected and secure.
