Our Mission

The Armed Services YMCA enhances the lives of military members and their families in spirit, mind, and body through programs relevant to the unique challenges of military life.

Our focus is to provide needed programs and services for single or married junior enlisted personnel and their family members. The Armed Services YMCA Hawaii empowers military families, no matter who they are or where they’re from, by ensuring access to resources, relationships, and opportunities for all to learn, grow, and thrive.

How We Strengthen Military Families and Communities in Hawaii

Armed Services YMCA Hawaii programs empower people, improve health and well-being, as well as provide support and inspire action in our communities today and every day.

We operate programs and services to ease the burden of military families and single service members who are currently serving, with an emphasis on junior enlisted personnel. We work with installation leadership to ensure a network of support for military families stationed in Hawaii. This collaboration allows us to identify and address gaps in services that pose a hardship to service members and their families – hardships that can negatively affect mission readiness.
