Demakes Family YMCA Project Overview

Explore the Demakes Family YMCA

Together, we’re better. The Lynn YMCA is growing by creating a place where all of us can find our authentic strengths and write the next chapter in our stories. When we grow together, the possibilities are endless.

As an anchor in the Lynn community for 150 years, the Lynn YMCA offers programming for people at every age and stage of life. Serving more than 20,000 people annually and offering everything from aquatics programs, transitional housing and childcare, to teen job training and providing healthy meals to over 500 children, the Lynn YMCA is so much more than just a gym and a place to swim. In many ways the YMCA is the heart of Lynn.
