About Our Y
The YMCA of Titusville was built in 1912 and has been an ever growing part of Titusville’s heritage and an important factor in the community. On May 20, 1912 a campaign to raise $75,000 dollars for a new YMCA building was launched by Titusville community leaders. Campaign headquarters were located in the Commercial Bank building. The seven-day drive was ended on the fifth day, as $90,000 had been raised.
The YMCA continued to serve the community in the original building for 102 years until the current facility was opened on June 16, 2014. Our newly renovated building has enabled us to serve many more members due to increased accessibility and our ability to expand the programs that we offer.
The Titusville YMCA strives to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
We are committed to the promise that all persons shall have access to all of its programs, facilities and employment without discrimination based upon race, religion, color, creed, sex, national origin, age, physical or mental disability or financial hardship. As a 501(c)(3) public charity, mandated under Federal law to lessen the burden of society on government the YMCA of Titusville, with it’s three core focus areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility, has always received support from the very community it serves as well as Crawford County, the State of Pennsylvania, the Federal government, and private corporations and foundations.
It’s this continued support and commitment to the values of the YMCA that have made the YMCA of Titusville the thriving and relevant nonprofit that it is today.
The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. We define our Areas of Focus as:
Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
Improving the nation’s health and well-being.
Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
Opportunities for All
The Y is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives enable kids to realize their potential, prepare teens for college, offer ways for families to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body; prepare people for employment, welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster a nationwide service ethic. And that’s just the beginning…
The YMCA of Titusville is more than just a health and wellness center offering fitness and athletic programs and resources. We are also one of the largest providers of affordable childcare in the Titusville area. We offer high quality childcare parents can trust.
Our commitment to families and children continues as we seek to expand our services to support our working and low-income families.
The YMCA of Titusville has a large impact on our members and those who live and work in Titusville. Each year we resolve real issues and meet real needs within the Titusville community, and we want to share that impact with you because it’s not just our Y…it’s your Y.
