COMMUNITY GROWS HERE
On 13.5 acres adjacent to Morris Grade School, the YMCA, in partnership with Morris Hospital and Healthcare Centers, envisions a place where the community will come together to grow in spirit, mind and body. Family bonds will grow stronger. Children will grow in character and gain self-confidence. People of all ages will grow healthier. Our community will grow here.

"If these two organization can work together for the betterment of the community, this will be a community-based game changer."
"When we grew up, everyone sat on their front porch and connected with their neighbors. Today, people build fences and stay in their backyards. The Y will become that front porch where the community can come together and connect."
Mayor Dick Kopczick,
City of Morris
"As an educator, I believe that the values and mission of the YMCA support what we are trying to accomplish with our students. Our goal is to unlock the full potential of each and every student no matter what obstacles may stand in their way. The YMCA believes in our kids, and having these types of much-needed programs and services available to our students is yet another step in the right direction for our County."
