Our History

The YMCA was founded in London, England in 1844 by George Williams. The first U.S. YMCA was founded in Boston in 1851 by Thomas Valentine Sullivan.

Locally, the YMCA flourished with solid community support as we opened our doors in Elkhart, South Bend and Niles in 1882. Activities such as bible study, swimming, football, basketball and other activities were commonplace. For more than 150 years, the YMCA has been one of the most successful social institutions our country has ever known.
