Our Mission

Our Mission

The Greater Morristown YMCA founded in the Christian traditions of honesty, respect, caring and service to others, seeks to enhance the character and quality of life for all people in the community, by providing activities to enrich their spiritual, mental and physical well being.

Our Cause

The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That's because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.

  • The Y is community centered. Since 1874, we've been listening and responding to our communities.
  • The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.
  • The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
  • The Y has local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.

Our History

We have been serving the community since 1874 when we first opened our doors in Morristown. Our service area encompasses Morristown, Morris Township, Convent Station. Morris Plains, Cedar Knolls, Whippany, East Hanover, Mendham, Chester and parts of Harding, but you are welcome here no matter where you live. Today, the Greater Morristown YMCA is providing affordable programs and services to more people than ever before.
