The YMCA is a leading non-profit both in our local community and across the nation. Strengthening community is our cause and every day we see many in need within Ventura and Santa Barbara County. Our programs meet people where they are regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. We provide warm beds to homeless youth. We make sure our seniors are not forgotten. We help cancer survivors heal physically and spiritually. We ensure children have a safe place to go afterschool. We help families spend quality time together. We reduce drownings through partnership with schools.
