Our Story

Indiantown Grand Opening

Our Y was incorporated on December 31, 1977, as the YMCA of Martin County. We merged with the older YMCA of St. Lucie County in July, 2000. The merger allowed us to expand our service area from one county –  Martin to four counties – Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee. In recognition of this expansion, we changed our name to the YMCA of the Treasure Coast.

On the Treasure Coast, 2023 marks our 45th year of  service to the community. It’s also the 36th year of our Easter House project, which is a major fundraiser for our services and programs.

We acknowledge that we are on the land of the Ais/Ays and the Taino Tribes who have lived here and Seminole Tribe who continue to live here. We recognize the Ais, Taino and Seminole Nations and their spiritual connection as the first stewards and the traditional caretakers of this land.
