When you join the Y, you belong to a community of men, women and children who strive every day to be healthy, confident and connected.
The Y is a cause for strengthening community. That’s why we’re here working with you every day, making sure that you, your family and community have the resources and support you need to learn, grow and thrive.
At the Y, no individual or family is turned away due to inability to pay.  Financial assistance is offered to those who cannot afford membership. 

With a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in our community, too. 

And don't forget, you are welcome to use other YMCA's once you become a member. You can visit any YMCA in Iowa for free with your current YMCA membership. Simply show your membership card when you check into other Iowa YMCAs. For out-of-state YMCAs that participate in the AWAY (Always Welcome at YMCAs) program, your current membership allows you privileges at many locations. We welcome AWAY-member guests to use our facilities free 12 times per calendar year. After the 12th visit, half the regular guest fee will be assessed. AWAY member guests may not bring guests or register for programs. Our members who are traveling can find which YMCAs participate in the AWAY program by going to and clicking on “Find Your Y.” Or call 1.888.333.9622.
