Family YMCA of Black Hawk County

Our Mission

Our mission at the Family YMCA of Black Hawk County is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Our Cause

The Family YMCA of Black Hawk County is a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of community.

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. The Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change. 

Though the world may be unpredictable, one thing remains certain - the Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, secure and connected children, families and communities. 

We serve members from the communities of Cedar Falls, Waterloo and other rural communities in Black Hawk County.
