YMCA at First & Main Project

This area of town along the Powers corridor is home to more than 90,000 households and is growing at about twice the national average.

Despite this growth, there are very few options for youth, families and seniors to engage in community and recreational activity.

We will partner with local organizations to create a place that focuses on recreation, social connection, health and education. A new Y will ensure all people on the Eastside will have access to the range of programs and services that build character, support education, improve health outcomes and strengthen a community.

To date we have raised $5,500,000 to open this Y and as a nonprofit organization that is here for all, we need your support to raise the last $500,000 to get us across the finish line. With the support of the community and generous people like you, we can make this Y a reality and improve the lives of those who call this part of Colorado Springs their home!
