WHO WE ARE
OUR MISSION, VALUES & VISION
For more than 130 years, the YMCA of Middle Tennessee has
been guided by its Christian mission and values to strengthen
the foundations of our community and nurture the potential of
the men, women and children who call the greater Nashville area home. As a leading
nonprofit dedicated to meeting community needs, we engage people
across 13 counties, giving more than 368,000 of our neighbors—nearly
a third of them kids—the chance to learn, grow and thrive.
A worldwide charitable fellowship united by a common loyalty to
Jesus Christ for the purpose of helping people grow in spirit,
mind and body.
In all that we do, our YMCA is guided by these core character
values: Caring, Honesty, Respect & Responsibility.
To offer Hope for Life to people of all ages, faiths, races, backgrounds
and abilities, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances. Through
a range of relationship-focused, impactful programs, services, partnerships
and collaborations, we will offer hope throughout Middle Tennessee and southern
Kentucky by Inspiring Youth, Improving Health, Serving Others and Creating Community.
Our YMCA continues to be led as it has been since its founding—by dedicated staff and
volunteers with a shared commitment to making our community stronger by helping people
grow in spirit, mind and body. Every day, our staff and volunteers work side-by-side
to fulfill our charitable Christian mission.
