We are excited to share with the City of Belleville and the greater Hastings and Prince Edward Counties’ residents our plan to build the YMCA Centre for Life and our goal to strengthen the physical, social, mental and emotional well-being of all members of our community.
With a population of over 50,000 and 200,000 more living within 30 minutes of the city, Belleville has experienced significant growth in recent years, including both young families and retirees. This growth has, in turn, magnified the challenges of the current YMCA facility and those of our partners.
The new and expanded facility will be accessible to all and provide an inclusive space for people of all abilities and socio-economic status, while providing more community services closer to home in a safe and welcoming environment.
Our new community hub will forge formal partnerships with complementary social service organizations who will be joining us under one roof, stabilizing our operations and contributing to the availability of programs and services at the YMCA.
