The Old Colony YMCA provides services and programs specifically designed to empower children, adults, and families to make positive change, bridge gaps, and overcome obstacles.

Our commitment to social responsibility is not a new development. Our deliberate work to build capacity to serve all people has been our hallmark since the 1972 launch of our first contract to provide residential treatment.

We offer numerous state-contracted services that help youth and their families grow and thrive. Funded through the Massachusetts Departments of Youth Services (DYS), Children and Families (DCF), Mental Health (DMH), Public Health (DPH), Massachusetts Probation Service, and Housing and Community Development (EOHLC), we offer outreach, shelter, assessment, and individualized treatment with a multi-disciplinary approach that involves the entire family.

We work to strengthen families and ensure youth have a long-term system of support and resources in order to maintain a positive lifestyle and grow into healthy, productive adults.
