Who We Are

The Unicoi County Family YMCA is a leading nonprofit organization committed to strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We have been part of the community since 1925. Members join us because they believe in us and our values, such as caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

Our Purpose

The Y plays a crucial role in making support and opportunities accessible, empowering people and communities to learn, grow, and thrive. By focusing on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y not only nurtures the potential of every youth and teen but also improves the nation’s health and well-being. It provides opportunities for everyone to give back and support their neighbors, fostering a sense of community and shared responsibility.
