Our first local YMCA opened its doors in temporary offices in Arlington on October 1, 1958, after a $400,000 fundraising campaign led by then-Mayor Tom Vandergriff. For more than 60 years, the Y has grown to include three branch locations that serve the Greater Arlington, Mansfield and Kennedale communities.
The Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA has intentionally empowered youth, improved health and well-being, and inspired action to positively impact our community. By bringing people together from different backgrounds, perspectives, and generations, we ensure that all have access to the opportunities, relationships and resources needed to grow and thrive. The Y does not turn anyone away for their inability to pay. Our doors are open to ALL in our community.
