Our Story

Indiantown grand opening

Indiantown grand opening

Our Y was incorporated on December 31, 1977, as the YMCA of Martin County. We merged with the older YMCA of St. Lucie County in July, 2000. The merger allowed us to expand our service area from one county –  Martin to four counties – Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee. In recognition of this expansion, we changed our name to the YMCA of the Treasure Coast.

On the Treasure Coast, 2017 marks our  40th year of  service to the community. It’s also the 30th year of our Easter House project, which is a major fundraiser for our services and programs.
