Covid-19 Emergency Response

For the latest updates and a list of FAQ’s visit our COVID-19 Updates page.

Though the YMCA of Delaware’s doors have temporarily closed for typical operations, we are still here for you and the community during this challenging time. In response to the current global pandemic, and at the request of local government officials, we have mobilized response efforts to offer needed programs and services including childcare for emergency workers and essential personnel, hunger relief for those in need and online health and fitness offerings (Virtual Y).

We can’t do this alone.

If you are interested in helping with Emergency Relief efforts, consider making a donation to our Emergency Relief Fund.

Our Mission


The YMCA is an association of people of all ages, ethnic groups and religious affiliations that strives to cultivate the human potential, self-esteem, and dignity of all people. Our organization exists to develop and practice the Christian principles of love, caring, inclusiveness, justice and peace…and to enrich the emotional, physical and social life of all individuals, families and our community.

Stronger Together

At the Y, we stand against all forms of racism, discrimination and hatred. We have a strong commitment to diversity, inclusion and compassion for all.  We share the grief and outrage felt by the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death.  As we watch and experience the unrest and violence that continues to erupt throughout our communities, we acknowledge that this reality is fueled by generations of injustice. Together through the Y, we can be a positive force for change in every community we serve. We must unite. We must be heard, and we must do better.

Notice:

Due to scheduled protests, the Central and Walnut Street YMCA's will close at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 5th.
