At the Santa Barbara Family YMCA, we take immense pride in our work to strengthen communities and help all of us 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 childcare, young adults job training, seniors a way to connect and children a safe place to go. We believe that 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.
At the Santa Barbara Family YMCA, you’ll discover a gathering place where families bond and stay connected, youth and teens build character values and leadership skills, seniors find companionship and improve their health, and adults find community, well-being, and support. For many, the Y is like a second home.
