YMCA of Greater Bergen County

360 Main St
Hackensack, NJ 07601

201-487-6600

Established in 1896, the YMCA did not receive a permanent home until the Anderson family property became the first home around 1915. In 1926 a capital campaign resulted in the building still in use today at 360 Main Street in Hackensack.

Built as the “Y for All,” the facility would be the site for programs for men, women, boys and girls. Over the years, responding to community needs, the Y has been home to a variety of programs and activities including a cafeteria, bowling alley, archery and rifle ranges, a stage with an active theater group, and dinners and dances for young adults.

In 1930, in Harriman State Park, the Y began a summer camping program for boys. There are now camping programs for boys and girls.

At the Main Street building a pool, wellness center, gym and program rooms provide children, adults, families and the community with opportunities for healthy living.

The Preschool Child Care and Youth After School programs have become an important part of the YMCA.

Today, the Y continues to serve a growing and diverse community. The Y is a leader in values education, emphasizing the core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
