YMCA of Greater Long Beach/Community Development Branch
525 E. 7th St
The Community Development YMCA exists to support the YMCA of Greater Long Beach Mission by reaching out and involving the lowest income communities in Long Beach with the highest quality most cutting edge innovative programs that teach values, build skills, and create community leaders.
Our staff and volunteers will reflect and embrace the diversity that is Long Beach through coming from the same neighborhoods, speaking the same languages, having the same faiths, and celebrating the same customs. Our programs will have both breadth and depth in the way we provide services and involve people and help them through crisis.
We believe that building strong children, families, and communities requires our YMCA to constantly do outreach beyond its walls and to build trust within all segments of our communities, especially those who are disengaged.
