The true power of the Y is in the hearts and actions of every neighbor who believes in our vision of a stronger community for all. Thanks to the generosity of our members, volunteers and donors, we are able to provide lifesaving swimming lessons, a safe, nurturing space for kids to learn and grow during out of school time, and outreach to families and individuals who are feeling isolated.

As a non-profit organization, our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that help build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. The money given to our Annual Campaign through individual donations and corporate partnerships is used to provide outreach programs for our community. 

Begin to Swim

Lifesaving swimming lessons are provided free of charge to fourth graders in the Lebanon City, Wayne Local, and Little Miami School and to all preschoolers enrolled in The Children's Center. 


LiveSTRONG® at the YMCA

LiveSTRONG® is a free program for adult cancer survivors and comes with a courtesy membership for the 12 weeks of the program. You do not need to be a Y member to participate. 


Veterans Connect

Veterans Connect is a FREE 12-week program for designed specifically to meet the needs of local veterans in Warren County. Participants meet twice a week at the Y and focus on: age-appropriate fitness, nutrition (share a meal), & mental health. 


Early Learners Literacy

Helps preschool-aged children whose families would normally not be able to afford traditional preschool. Children develop the skills they need to be successful in kindergarten through fun learning experiences including free educational field trips throughout the school year.

Blessed Respite & Kinship Care

The purpose of Blessed Respite is to give the parents of children with special needs or caretakers of kinship (people raising children that are not their own) and foster children a time to get away for some rest and fun while their child/children have fun doing various activities that will be provided by loving and trained YMCA staff and volunteers.

Financial Assistance Program

We recognize that for our community to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy and confident. The YMCA welcomes all and believes that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their ability to pay. With your help we are able to provide assistance to youth, adults and families based on their individual needs and circumstances.



The Annual Campaign is our yearly fundraising effort.  We are a 503C, and donations are tax deductible. Individuals and corporations can donate or sponsor events. We also accept IRA contributions, legacy donations to our Heritage Club, and other forms of philanthropy. All donations are used to provide services, programs, and memberships to those in our community who need them most. 

The Early Learners Literacy Program was created to provide free education to children who would typically not be able to afford preschool. Our goal is to help preschool-aged children develop the skills they need to be successful in Kindergarten. Countryside YMCA provides this free program for three local communities:  Brookview, LaLuz, and East Ridge.

The Begin to Swim Program was created as one way to combat the drowning statistics of youth. Lifesaving swimming lessons are provided free of charge to fourth graders in the Lebanon City Schools and Little Miami Schools and to all preschoolers enrolled in The Children's Center. 

The Blessed Respite Program was created for parents with special needs children and kinship families to enjoy time away knowing their children are being cared for by trained staff and volunteers. 

YMCA Camp Countryside Day Camp scholarships are provided to kids who need financial support to enjoy summer camp experiences. 

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA  In 2008, the YMCA partnered with the LIVESTRONG® Foundation to help cancer survivors begin the journey toward recovery with the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. The program offers adults affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities focused on strengthening the whole person.
