We continue to thrive while we await the completion of our renovated and expanded home, the new Linwood YMCA/James B. Nutter Community Center. Thanks to Kansas City Public Schools, we’re still impacting the lives of people of all ages from our temporary space at Central Academy of Excellence.

The Linwood Family YMCA is operating during the construction at Central Academy of Excellence at 3221 Indiana Avenue.

Many thanks to all of you—our donors, Community Mission Board, volunteers, members, program participants and neighbors—for your support. Because of you, we are making our community stronger!

The Linwood Family YMCA has facilities and programs to meet a variety of interests and needs for people of all ages. Cardio and strength-training equipment, a full basketball court, group exercise classes and Silver Sneakers classes for active older adults, will help you reach and maintain your wellness goals.  For youth we have a teen room where young people can do homework, play board and video games and engage in safe, healthy activities with their peers.  We offer Child Watch services while you work out and, in the summer, you can get "cool in the pool" in our outdoor pool.  Our state of the art computer lab is open and available for members to utilize daily.  New programs and services to serve the Linwood community are in the planning, so check back often for updates
