THE BILLINGS FAMILY YMCA
There are currently 11,500 Y members in Yellowstone County, nearly one in ten residents belong to the YMCA and many more participate in Y programs. We offer programs for a variety of ages ranging from 6 months old to seniors. The Y offers opportunities for individuals and families to grow in spirit, mind, and body at every life stage. People are part of the Billings Family YMCA for different reasons; some come for the quick workout, to learn to swim, play in a basketball league, or bring their children to sports programs, preschool or daycare.
The Billings Family YMCA was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization in 1905. The first building location was on the southwest corner of North 29th Street, currently the Wendy’s building. The Billings Family YMCA moved into its current location, 402 North 32nd Street and Fourth Ave North in 1953.
Together, the nation’s 2,685 YMCAs are the largest not–for–profit community service organization in America, working to meet the health and human service needs of 20.2 million men, women and children in 10,000 communities in the United States. YMCA’s are at the heart of community life across the country: 42 million families and 72 million households are located within three miles of a YMCA.Montana State Alliance of YMCAs
