WHERE IT ALL BEGAN...

In 1969 a group of community leaders led by David and Betty Jo Ashe shared a dream of building a YMCA in Boca Raton.

They raised $30k to start the program and in 1970 Texaco Oil Company donated 15 acres of land in Boca Del Mar. 

In 1971 a capital campaign led by Peter Blum raised over $500k for construction and in 1972 the YMCA of Boca Raton was incorporated and our Y began.

In 2000 the YMCA of Boca Raton became the YMCA of South Palm Beach County, and we opened other locations with the DeVos-Blum Family YMCA in Boynton and the YMCA @901 NCCI Holdings, Inc.
