The YMCA Movement

The YMCA has a long-established track record of addressing our nation's most pressing needs related to youth, health and community. There are 2,700 YMCAs across the United States, serving approximately 10,000 communities, engaging with 9 million youth and 13 million adults each year.

Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA

Established in 2020, the Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA is the unification of two equal YMCA associations in Rowan County (formerly YMCA of Rowan County) and Cabarrus County (formerly Cannon Memorial YMCA). Since 1908 the Y has been serving Rowan and Cabarrus Counties with a focus on our Christian principles and community-focused mission. 

For Youth Development

All children and teens deserve the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive under the care of guiding role models who believe in their potential. The Y’s youth programs help kids learn critical life skills, discover their passions and grow in confidence.

For Healthy Living

The Y believes in a holistic approach to community health that supports each person’s spirit, mind and body. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

For Social Responsibility

Everyone in our community deserves the chance to belong and be well. At the Y, no one is turned away because of their inability to pay. From volunteer outreach to our financial assistance program, the Y is dedicated to serving all.


As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Y provides crucial programs and services every day. With the help of generous donors, we provide thousands of servings of healthy produce for our communities through the Share the Harvest Community Farm, we prevent drownings with swim lessons, and we provide more than $1 million in financial assistance to ensure everyone has a chance to succeed and belong at the Y. Our Tax ID Number is 58-1574620.
