Renovation Update 


Why do we need to renovate the Osceola Y? Being the leading county in the state of Florida for foreclosures and one of the hardest hit by the recession, Osceola County is a county in need.  At the Y, we want to help people live better lives. Our renovation will allow us to provide more of the programs, services and initiatives that make healthier communities, get children and teens off the street, help send disadvantaged teens to college and lead the fight against chronic illnesses, in summary, we want to help move our community forward.


Osceola needs a great Y and thanks to Dr. Phillips Charities and Mary Jane Arrington, we are a few steps closer to reinvent the Y to better serve the men, women and children of Osceola County. Arrington led our Osceola County Y Capital Campaign and raised $250,000 and Dr. Phillips Charities contributed a matching $1.5 million toward our Osceola Y.


The Osceola Y expansion will add 10,300 square feet, making it one of our largest YMCAs in Central Florida, and allowing more neighbors to connect with one another and the community.


The new Y will offer a Pulse Area or gathering area designed for members, families and friends can all come together and meet or make new friends as they develop lasting, meaningful relationships.


Help us advance our cause.


Phase 1 of the Osceola County Y construction project will be complete on January 9 and open to members.


With Phase 1 completed, the Osceola community will be able to enjoy an Expanded Wellness Center that gives members new ways to get healthy, including:

  • New Studio Cycling Room
  • New Multipurpose Room for aerobic classes and other uses
  • New State of the Art Wellness Equipment


Phase 2 will then start, including:

  • New Wellness Floor
  • Adult and Family Locker Rooms providing members with convenience and saving time
