Our Focus



Welcome to the YMCA of Port Arthur web site.

Our Y has been serving the community of Southeast Texas since 1902. We are proud to be a part of the community in offering programs and services. Our Y is for all; we serve people of all ages, ethnic origins, religious affiliations, and socioeconomic levels.

Our Cause

The Y is a cause-driven organization. We believe in our mission, “to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.” The national Y recently went through a re-branding transformation. We used to be for strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. Now we believe a better fit for the times is the Y is for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

Our Y is one of the top service/program organizations in Southeast Texas. We are honored to be able to offer our services to everyone. We invite you to come and visit our facility or sign up for one of our many wonderful programs. Thank you for your commitment to our community and our Y!
