affordable housing at the YMCA

The Bethlehem Y– for youth development, for healthy living, for social responsibility.

Since its founding in 1941, the Bethlehem YMCA has focused on helping people develop spiritually, mentally and physically. Many Ys offer rooms which are permanent residences for single adults as part of their mission.

Despite the name, the Y is not just for the young, not just for men and not just for Christians. Our sliding scale fee structure means that no one is turned away because of the inability to pay for membership.

The “Y” embraces people of all ages, incomes, abilities, and ethnic backgrounds. Our mission is carried out everyday at our two Bethlehem facilities. We offer quality pre-school day care, before and after school activities for older children, teen and youth programs, progressive swim lessons, adult cardio and aerobic activities, and personal training on our Nautilus and Hammer Strength equipment.
