About Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA

The Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA was constructed in 1983 with a rich history of serving our community and surrounding communities with programs and activities that help further health and well-being. The Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA provides programs and services that promote four core values: caring, honesty, respect, responsibility. These programs include: child care, youth sports, swimming, camping, gymnastics, teen, family and senior adult programs, health and fitness, and volunteerism, with many opportunities.

The Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA provides access to quality medical and dental care for our community’s disadvantaged children, teens, adults and seniors is part of the lifesaving mission of the YMCA. At the Legacy Foundation Chris-Town Family YMCA, children and adults can receive diagnoses and medical treatment, immunizations, physical exams, referrals to other healthcare services and healthcare education and nutrition. Dental services for school age children are vital to help increase successful management of chronic illnesses and decrease school absenteeism.

Abrazo Health Care School-Based Health Centers, in collaboration with Phoenix Baptist Hospital, BHHS Legacy Foundation, Alhambra, Cartwright, Osborn and Washington School Districts and in conjunction with St. Vincent de Paul Dental Clinic and the Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA, offer primary medical care and dental services to children who are uninsured and under-served. There is so much to experience at Chris-Town YMCA!

I thoroughly enjoy my visits to the ‘Y’ at Christown. I usually go six mornings a week. The staff is friendly and very encouraging to me before and after my workouts. Any questions I have are answered thoughtfully and quickly. The lifeguards have gone out of their way to help me. At the end of August I couldn’t swim one length of the pool doing a modified sidestroke. Now I swim between 26 and 37 laps, depending on time constraints. They tell me how good I am doing, offer suggestions regarding technique and one has loaned me a pair if goggles until I can get my own. As of ten days ago, Walmart didn’t have them in stock yet. The pool is clean and was kept warm all Winter. Group or class instructors have been patient and encouraging with me. I love this ‘Y’ location!
