Renovation Update: Phase 2 Complete

More people in Osceola County are creating healthy relationships, teens are getting off the streets and people are living healthier lives. Our impact is being felt deeper and wider because we are able to welcome more of our neighbors in our Osceola Y, including our Latin community.

Just recently, our Director of Wellness Mariana Gonzalez was on Revista “InfoMas”, a program of Bright House Networks. She spoke to the Latin community about the improvements made to our Osceola Y and how it would affect their community. The interview will be seen on channel 900 between March 26 and March 30.

Our Osceola Y’s doors are being opened to everyone creating something new and exciting where so many families have been hurting. The determination of our employees and volunteers has paid off by bringing the community a place where they can feel safe, be engaged and learn healthy life skills.

The Osceola Y improvements are bringing renewed strength and energy to this community, thanks to Dr. Phillips Charities and Mary Jane Arrington. These renovations will make the Osceola Y one of our largest YMCAs in Central Florida and connect more neighbors with one another and the community.

Phase 2 of the Osceola County Y is complete and open to members today. Healthier lives and disease prevention will be a result of our new improvements, which include:

  • A New State of the Art Wellness Floor
  • Adult Locker Rooms
  • Exterior Signage
  • Exterior Paint
  • Furniture in the Pulse Area

Landscaping improvement will begin in the next few weeks.

By coming together we can change lives and impact our Osceola community like never before. In April alone, we are hosting numerous opportunities to unite communities of every background. Our Grand Re-Opening will be held in May and will be open to everyone.

Join us.
