Our Cause

At the Y, we focus on nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our community’s health and well-being and giving back to our neighbors.  Everyone is welcome at the Y, regardless of age, ability, income, or background.  During these difficult times when tensions are high, the Y is dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion.  Our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility guide everything we do.

The Westfield Area YMCA has been proudly serving the communities of Westfield, Cranford, Garwood and Mountainside since 1923.  We are for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Community Resources
If you’re feeling anxious, the resources at Here2Helpnj.org are available.  We are also proud to be partnering with the Westfield Food Pantry to help those in need. Drop off non-perishable items in the large container outside the front door at any time.
