Exciting News! The Community YMCA and YMCA of Western Monmouth County have come together  starting September 1, 2019 as one new association, YMCA of Greater Monmouth County. HERE FOR ALL – we empower youth and teens, improve health and strengthen community.

In April, our two Ys announced the merger and since then have been integrating all aspects of operations, from human resources, finance and marketing to membership and programs. A leading nonprofit charity, YMCA of Greater Monmouth County unites 36,000 people of all ages, incomes and backgrounds, employs more than 1,200 people and engages about 650 volunteers. With an operating budget of $25 million, we are the second largest YMCA in New Jersey.

In 2018, we provided $925,000 in financial assistance to strengthen approximately 3,000 families in need. Our life-changing programs and services are anchored in many communities: health and wellness facilities in Freehold Township, Old Bridge and Red Bank; outdoor day camps in Millstone and Wall; a community center in Freehold Borough; counseling and social service centers in Eatontown, Matawan and Middletown; child care centers in Freehold Township, Matawan and Red Bank; and integrated in nearly 100 schools in Monmouth and Ocean counties. Guided by core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, we are dedicated to helping everyone grow in spirit, mind and body regardless of age, income or background.
