Strong Partnerships Build Healthy Communities
The brand new, state-of-the-art, Lake Anna YMCA Community Center opened to the public in December 2007. It's reaching out to hundreds of health seekers throughout Barberton and its surrounding communities. The 57,000 square-foot facility features a six-lane competition swimming pool with a kids play area, the Barberton Community Center (Parks and Rec.), Active Adults Division and the Anna Dean physical therapy and performance center, operated by the Barberton Citizens Hospital.
The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. The Y is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives: enable kids to realize their potential, prepare teens for college, offer ways for families to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body, prepare people for employment, welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster a nationwide service ethic. And that's just the beginning.
