The YMCA of Greater Des Moines has been serving central Iowa for 151 years. During some of the darkest times in our history – through wars, natural disasters, civil unrest and social upheaval – the Y has been a beacon of light, bringing people together in support of our mission to build healthier spirit, mind and body for all.
Although our facilities are temporarily closed to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, our mission work goes on. Our staff has assembled a wealth of resources for members’ use – everything from workout videos to kids’ activities to assistance dealing with anxiety and other mental health concerns. Take advantage of these resources and share them with family and friends. Also, check out our online communities on Facebook and become part of the discussions there.
We hope to see you back at the Y very soon, but until that happens, we will be posting new content here on a daily basis. Send any content suggestions to email@example.com and we’ll try to accommodate them!
Our resident population is especially fragile at this time and we need to ask our community for help. The unknowns of this disease are potentially devastating for those we serve. Please consider extending your support to us in these ways.
