Union County Family YMCA 

The Union County Family YMCA first started out of the old Selective Services 
building on West 6th Street, Marysville, Ohio in 1975.  Quickly the YMCA 
moved to the vacated office of Dr. Striker on West 5th Street by the town run. 
Many youth and family programs were developed and grown out of this location, 
as this was the beginning of our continued growth in Union County. 

In 1982 YMCA volunteers and community members began fundraising for our 
permanent location on Charles Lane. The Lewis Family generously donated the 
land where the Union County Family YMCA continues to stand, opening our 
doors to the first YMCA at this location.

In October of 2002, the Union County Family YMCA opened its doors to the 
newly-renovated location to better meet the needs of the expanding community. 
Since then, the Union County Family YMCA has been and always will be dedicated 
to building a healthy, confident, and connected community. 

Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a 
mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good. 

Serving Union County is our passion.  With its beautiful rural landscape, neighborly 
hospitality, alluring business enterprises, and charming attraction, Union County is 
one of the best places to live. Strengthening the foundation of community is our Mission, 
and we are proud to continue to be a part of such a strong community in Union County.


Driven by its founding mission, the Y has served as a leading nonprofit committed to 
strengthening community for more than 175 years. The Y empowers everyone, no 
matter who they are or where they're from, by ensuring access to resources, 
relationships and opportunities for all to learn, grow and thrive. By bringing together 
people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, the Y's goal is to 
improve overall health and well-being, ignite youth empowerment and demonstrate the 
importance of connections in and across 10,000 communities nationwide. 

At the Y, we take immense pride in our work to strengthen communities and help all of 
us to be our best selves. We provide a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well 
and to give back. We give parents child care, young adults job training, seniors a way 
to connect and children a safe place to go. We believe everyone - no matter who they 
are or where they're from - deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. 
Everything the Y does is in service of making sure people and communities thrive. 


To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
