The Daviess County Family YMCA makes support and opportunities accessible to empower children, youth and adults to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves our communiity's health and well-being and provides opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.

blueMajor Construction Planned for OctoberHard Hat
A second Capital Construction Project involving the women's locker room, the pool and men's locker room will begin on October 6. The women’s shower area will be completely rebuilt, and a bathing suit dryer will be installed.

A new counter top, sink, water cooler and bathing suit dryer will be added to the men’s locker room. Both the men’s and women’s locker rooms will have individually adjusted water temperature controls in the showers.

Additionally, a new chemical system will be installed in the swimming pool which will avoid the harsh chemicals currently used. The entire ceiling in the pool area will be painted during this time as well.

In order to accomplish these major projects, both the women’s locker room and the pool will be closed from October 6 until November 4.  The upstairs women’s restroom will be open, and Y members will be able to use the Vincennes pool during the closure.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these much needed upgrades, and would like to thank the donors who have made it possible to undertake this project. The Y is seeking additional donations to help with this project.

For a Better Us - Annual Campaign

We thank all new and consecutive donors who gave to the YMCA’s Philanthropic Annual Campaign in April.  Because of this generous support, the Y is able to continue to help children and families in need with financial assistance so that they may participate in life changing programs. 

Members, businesses, corporations and organizations all have recognized the good works and far reaching impact that the Y has on the community and have supported us in our cause of making the community stronger.

Donations may still be made to the Daviess County YMCA; at present we are just short of our goal.  Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Those who give $1,000 or more receive recognition for Round Table giving and will have their names placed on a plaque.
