Enriching our Impact

Strategic Plan 2017-2019
The Y's mission is our reason for being, and the Y's cause is our mission in action; a promise to do everything in our power to inspire the common good and make life better for individuals, families and communities. The Harrison Family YMCA is dedicated to building healthy, confident, secure and connected children, families and communities. We've made a difference in people's lives from 1911 when the Rocky Mount, Atlantic Coast Line Railroad YMCA was opened and began offering an overnight dormitory for hot meals and showers to Railroad employees. That difference grew throughout the years that ultimately lead to the opening of our current facility in 2005. Today we continue to support our members and community by having state of the art equipment, instructors, staff and programs available to serve our community. Our Y is guided by our mission, identity, impact and strives to deliver transformative responses to community needs in our service area of Nash and Edgecombe Counties.
