About Our Y

At the Westfield Area YMCA, strengthening community is our cause.

With a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, being a part of the Y will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself  but in your community.  Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, ability, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

You will find a welcoming and supportive community at the Westfield Area YMCA.

Here is where parents find a safe and nurturing environment for their children, families come together to spend quality time, and adults of every age connect with their community, build strong relationships and learn to live a healthier life.
