About our Y

The YMCA of Georgia's Piedmont has branches located in Winder and Hartwell, Georgia. We service the communities of Barrow, Walton, Hart, Franklin, Jackson, and Elbert. Our volunteers, staff, and members are committed to creating an environment at our YMCA where "God and a good time are friends." Give us a call or stop by for a visit. We would love to meet you!

The YMCA of Georgia’s Piedmont has been serving the community since 1996. Today we serve over 15,000 Individuals through membership, outreach, and program services throughout Northeast Georgia. As a not-for-profit organization, we strive to reach people of every age, race, faith and socio-economic status.

When you join the YMCA, you join a movement of nearly 100,000 people making positive changes in our community through ministries like:

  • Teen enrichment and leadership programs
  • Wellness and life coaching sessions
  • Christ focused childcare and sports

The VALUE of the YMCA membership goes beyond a treadmill and deeper than a pool. You are part of an organization that is dedicated to changing lives and teaching people about Jesus Christ.
