It is with much excitement and enthusiasm we announce that, after unanimous decisions by both the YMCA of South Hampton Roads and YMCA of Portsmouth Boards, the YMCA of Portsmouth will officially become a family center of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads as of June 1, 2018. Both YMCA organizations have been working together for several years to complete the process of this formal merger. 

The Portsmouth YMCA has been honored to serve the Portsmouth community since 1857, and the YMCA of South Hampton Roads has served the Hampton Roads area since 1885. Sharing similar missions and visions, both organizations have a long and rich heritage of serving their communities. This tradition of service will continue and be enhanced as our organizations jointly share the benefits of a network of family centers focused on excellence. The completion of this merger will signal new and exciting times for both organizations as we work together to continue the Y’s cause to strengthen community. 

The YMCA of South Hampton Roads has grown to serve the Eastern Shore of Virginia, northeastern North Carolina and as far west as South Boston, Virginia. With 22 fully equipped YMCA membership facilities, the YMCA of South Hampton Roads is also proud to bring you a variety of programming.
