Who Are They?
The Family YMCA’s mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. There are a myriad of programs and services for children, teens, adults, families and active adults, many with a special emphasis on childcare and health enhancement. In addition, The Family Y provides recreational and social programs at no charge for those with special needs and mental disabilities. All programs at the Y are structured around the core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith. The Family YMCA is a non-profit, charitable community-based organization committed to helping individuals grow in spirit, mind and body, regardless of financial circumstances. No one is turned anyone away due to an inability to pay. Financial assistance is available for all programs through funding from United Way of Southeast Mississippi, Partners with Youth Program and Friends of the Y.
The Group Lifestyle Balance program for diabetics, pre-diabetics and those with metabolic syndrome focuses on healthy eating and adding activity to already busy lives. The program focuses on how to break unhealthy habits or how to incorporate exercise into your life.
