The Santa Anita Family Y facility opened in 1986. In October 2016, the Y added Irwindale and Azusa to it's official service area.
At the Y, strengthening the community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
What We Do
The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential in every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
The Y is, and always will be dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires and child and when a community comes together for the common good.
The Y: We're for Youth Development, Healthy Living, Social Responsibility
