Our Mission

The Hopewell Valley YMCA is a charitable organization dedicated to building a healthy spirit, mind and body, through programs which promote good health, strong families, youth leadership and community development. YMCA's are open to men, women and children of all ages, abilities, races and religions.

Justice Equity Diversity Inclusion

The HOPEWELL VALLEY YMCA stands committed to creating a community that is INCLUSIVE FOR ALL, through its four pillars of CARING, HONESTY, RESPECT, & RESPONSIBILITY.
These pillars are the main agents of change and support in our community. We stand against racism, bias, and inequalities and the silence that keeps them in place; and promote strong communities that connect all people to their potential, purpose, and each other.
Stand with us by CARING for one another while strengthening our communal ties, by upholding HONESTY in our lives, both individually and collectively, by RESPECTING individuality and recognizing the fundamental human rights of all people, and by taking on the RESPONSIBILITY we have as human beings to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Help us build our community with equity and justice for all people and show our children that we can do better and will do better together.
