YMCA of Greater Monmouth County is here for all – to empower youth and teens, improve health, and strengthen community. A leading nonprofit charity, the Y unites 36,000 people of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds. During the pandemic, we responded to vital community needs, providing more than $735,000 in relief services. Over the past 5 years, our Y has provided more than $5MM+ in financial assistance and subsidies to Y participants throughout greater Monmouth County.

Our life-changing programs and services are anchored in 9 communities: health and wellness facilities in Freehold Township, Old Bridge and Red Bank; an outdoor day camp in Wall; counseling and social service centers in Eatontown, Matawan and Middletown; a childcare center in Freehold Township; and integrated in nearly 100 schools in Monmouth and Ocean counties. Named a New Jersey Top Workplace 2023 and 2022 by New Jersey Advance Media, we’re based in Shrewsbury, NJ.
