Welcome to the YMCA of Lincoln!

We believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. That's why we focus our work in these areas:

  • Youth Development
  • Healthy Living
  • Social Responsibility

Today, the YMCA of Lincoln operates four YMCA facilities: Cooper, Copple Family, Fallbrook, and Northeast. In addition, the Y offers kids safe places to grow and develop through programs like Youth Sports and YMCA Camp Kitaki. 


Message from Renee Yost, President & CEO

We are an association of people dedicated to enriching lives. After you have had an opportunity to look at us online, come visit us in real life... we welcome the opportunity to get to know you.

The YMCA was formed to provide for the safe and healthy development of young people. We also focus on teen and family membership services, as well as developmental program opportunities, such as youth sports, camping, and community service. Our staff integrates the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility into all activities and programs.

Many of the programs you see at the Lincoln YMCA would not be possible without our program volunteers such as program instructors, youth coaches, and mentors. These volunteers allow us to expand into areas that otherwise could not be offered. The Lincoln YMCA has a reputation for its dedicated policy volunteers committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure a strong YMCA.

The Lincoln YMCA is well known locally and nationally for delivering premier service and creatively collaborating with other community agencies. As we strive for excellence in this new millennium, we seek opportunities to continue to build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.

See you at the YMCA,

Renee Yost
President & CEO
