The YMCA of Beaufort County is part of a 171 year old worldwide organization that enables the citizens in Beaufort County to develop values and behaviors that are consistent with our mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The Wardle Family Branch of the YMCA of Beaufort County was chartered in 1990 and opened its doors in June of 1996. The YMCA is a locally autonomous organization made up of voluntary membership that is open to individuals of all ages, race, religion, incomes and abilities. Programs and services incorporate the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility and the YMCA encourages and challenges its staff, members, volunteers and program participants to accept and demonstrate these values. The YMCA of Beaufort County currently serves approximately 8.000 individuals through the programs and services provided.
Where did the YMCA Come to be What it is Now?
Today, the Y engages more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the U.S. As the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to helping people and communities to learn, grow and thrive, our contributions are both far-reaching and intimate—from influencing our nation’s culture during times of profound social change to the individual support we provide an adult learning to read.
By nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation’s health and well-being, and supporting and serving our neighbors, the Y ensures that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected and secure.
Here’s a glance at our rich history, and a snapshot of our many successes over the last 160 years on behalf of the individuals and communities we are privileged to serve.
