Simi Valley Family YMCA History

YMCA programs were run in Simi Valley by the Conejo YMCA in the 1970’s.  As the popularity and demand for Y services grew, the Simi Valley Y was formed as a separate branch of the association in 1984.  Early programs were held at schools, churches, parks and rented space consisting of childcare, day camp, Indian Guides and various youth activity classes. 

Through the support of community leaders, the YMCA was able to acquire the former Simi Valley Police Station and Court House which is now the present site of the Y facility.  Through the support of the generous donors, funds were raised by volunteers to renovate the building and add other amenities including two indoor pools.  The new Y facility opened in June of 2000.  Today, the Simi Valley branch operates 12 school age childcare sites on school campuses, a preschool center and the healthy living facility at 3200 Cochran Street.  The Y serves approximately 9,000 people per year in programs that provide youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  The Y is guided by a board of local volunteers.
