Elevating the C in the YMCA
At the YMCA of Orange County our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. The CARES program provides families and individuals the opportunities to experience and know Christ through community-based programs, activities and partnerships with churches and Christian organizations.
Our CARES Chaplain from the Newport-Mesa Y, Ian Stevenson, was recently featured on Spectrum News for the selfless work he is doing to support our local communities.

The YMCA longs to be more than just a place to work out, but as a place which dramatically impacts the people it touches. We strive to fulfill our purpose by walking hand-in-hand each day to make a lasting difference in our communities and in the lives of the people we serve.
