The Greater Valley YMCA (GVYMCA or GVY) is a volunteer-led,

each of our branches, we concentrate our efforts in three areas:
Healthy Living, Youth Development, and Social Responsibility. And
we do so in a way that upholds the Ys traditional family values of
Respect, Responsibility, Caring, and Honesty.
For over 100 years, the Y has made tangible differences in the
communities of Allentown, Bethlehem, Catasauqua, Easton, Forks,
Nazareth, those comprising the Slate Belt region and the Lehigh
Valley as a whole. Founded as individual YMCAs as early as 1897,
the following branches of the Greater Valley Y merged together
between 2010 and 2015: the Nazareth YMCA, the Suburban North Family
YMCA, the Family YMCA of Easton, Phillipsburg & Vicinity and the
Bethlehem YMCA. In 2014, the Forks YMCA Education Center was
established. The Slate Belt branch was opened in 2015. In January
2017, the Allentown YMCA joined the Greater Valley YMCA.
