Who We Are The Richmond Family YMCA offers a variety of recreation, sports and fitness programs to children and adults. For example, it is the only place in town that offers opportunities for pre-schoolers to play soccer. Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build Spirit, Mind and Body for all. What We Do The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side- by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn and grow.
