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 really like the Chris-Town YMCA. I have worked out in several YMCAs since I sold my own gym in 2013. The Chris-Town YMCA has a very nice atmosphere, great equipment, lots of activities and a very friendly and courteous staff.
