In the four years since the present Waukee Family YMCA facility was constructed, the Y has become an even greater hub for relationships and collaboration within the community.
The Y is not just a state-of-the-art facility. Relationships with individuals, schools, local government, non profits and churches have made the Waukee Family YMCA a thriving community of people committed to strengthening the foundations of community.
“The Y is uniquely positioned in a way that it can partner with a diverse group of organizations, not just in Waukee, but nationally,” said Eric Kress, executive director. “We design our programs and open up the facility to be inclusive and welcoming to the entire community, allowing us to connect with everyone. We like to think that the Y is the glue that brings our community together.”
The Y’s programs; such as youth sports, child care, day camp, preschool, aquatics, AOA, and wellness also provide a great opportunity for the community to live healthy, develop potential, and contribute to help one another.
