The Valley YMCA has been a vital part of the Valley community since 1866 – serving the residents of Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour, and Shelton. At the Valley YMCA, we build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.
The Valley Y has a wide variety of programs for the youth in our community. The Y is a leading nonprofit committed to nurturing the potential of youth – serving infants through teens – in a safe environment. Our experienced and caring staff and volunteers model the positive core Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility that help build character.

Since March, the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA has collected almost 10,000 pounds of food for over 25 local food pantries to feed our community members facing food insecurity – one of our community’s most critical needs.
Over 56, YMCA staff and Board Volunteers have participated in over nineteen Food Distribution Events to support the efforts of our community partners.
Our hunger relief efforts have grown leaps and bounds in the last nine months and will continue as long as there is a need among our neighbors and community members.
Engage along side us to help our community. Together we can make a difference.
