Be Heart Healthy, Be Happy
National Heart Month
Celebrate National Heart Month at the Y! We provide many tools and resources to promote healthier decisions so you can know the best ways to keep your heart healthy.
According to the Center for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women. February is the time to raise awareness of factors that may cause high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke and to encourage our families to make small changes that make a big difference.
Take Your Shot

At the Y, we focus on building confidence and character in kids to encourage them to embrace new experiences. Whether your child is playing soccer for the first time, or a returning athlete seeking to build confidence and improve skills, YMCA youth sports programs guide them and encourage them to give it their best shot.

Change Someone’s Tomorrow, Today
Every day, the YMCA of Greater Houston gives our community the support it needs to learn, grow, and thrive. When you support the YMCA of Greater Houston, you help guarantee that everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability to pay, can benefit from the YMCA’s programs, like youth sports, child care and swim lessons.
Together, with the help of all YMCA of Greater Houston locations, we are on our way to raising $7.6 million. And one hundred percent of the dollars donated to the Y are invested locally, into programs that serve children and families from our community.
