Elevating the C in the YMCA
At the YMCA of Orange County our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. The CARES program provides families and individuals the opportunities to experience and know Christ through community-based programs, activities and partnerships with churches and Christian organizations.
CARES In The Community
This past summer, the Newport-Mesa CARES Team served alongside Trellis to help a terminally ill woman named Erika clean and clear out her house. We as a CARES team try to share the love of Jesus by helping people in a very practical way with no strings attached. Erika was not a believer 6 months ago but has since been baptized.
Our Program At A Glance
- Onsite Chaplains (at select YMCA locations)
- Seasonal Donation/Charitable Drives
- Community Outreach
- Prayer Requests
- Community Events
The YMCA longs to be more than just a place to work out, but as a place which dramatically impacts the people it touches. We strive to fulfill our purpose by walking hand-in-hand each day to make a lasting difference in our communities and in the lives of the people we serve.
Christmas Tree of Hope
Join us as we provide Christmas trees to families in need! With your support, we’ll be able to spread some holiday cheer by gifting a fully decorated tree to members of our community who otherwise could not afford to deck their homes with cheer.
How You Can Help…
Nominate a local family or neighbor to be gifted a Christmas Tree of Hope this holiday season!
We will need a huge team of volunteers for tasks such as organizing donated ornaments and decorations, putting together kits, and delivering the trees to recipients homes.
