Here in Greater Baldwinsville, our families and seniors need a place to play in a healthy environment. Cancer survivors and military families need no-cost support. Our children need a place where they can develop the strength and confidence they’ll need to thrive as adults.


Northwest family Ymca

Greater Baldwinsville volunteers are working together to build a new Y to meet the needs of this community. Construction is well underway at 8040 River Road, Baldwinsville.

Our new Y will strengthen community for generations to come, but we don't have to wait until the doors open. If you'd like to know more about the new Y and how you can help spread the word, here's what you can do:
*In designing the Northwest Family YMCA, we took lessons from the East Y. The two facilities will be similar in size and will have several features in common. There will also be critical differences. These tours will be led by people familiar with both Y's, so they are the best way to help you see how the Northwest Family Y will strengthen community.

Growing Strength

The Northwest Family Y will have a positive impact on the local economy. With an estimated annual payroll of $2.5 million, the new Y will provide about 325 full- and part-time jobs. Many of those jobs will give our teenagers a great first-job experience. We anticipate approximately 13,000 new members of the Northwest Family YMCA. More than half (approximately 7,000) of these new members will be children of the expected 2,500 new family members.

Continuing Support

In 2010, Baldwinsville-based Research and Marketing Strategies conducted a random telephone survey of residents in the Town of Lysander. It found that 86 percent of residents believe the Northwest Family YMCA will enhance the quality of life in the Greater Baldwinsville area, and that 53 percent are at least somewhat likely to join.


The mission of the YMCA of Greater Syracuse is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
