The Homewood-Brushton Family YMCA provides programming for all ages and is a place where the entire community can gather. Families prosper as they come together on the road to healthy living, social responsibility and youth development.
The programs and services offered by the Homewood Y include an employment center, computer lab, tutoring, counseling, youth prevention and food pantry. Members enjoy a fully equipped modern wellness center, sauna, steam room, a full gymnasium, indoor track, locker rooms, a multipurpose and meeting rooms.
In 1916 the Homewood-Brushton YMCA was holding meetings at a community Church at the corner of Bennett Street and Homewood Avenue. During this time churches were providing mock Olympic competitions and father-son banquets for boys, as well as family picnics to unite the community. The house at 7140 Bennett Street was purchased in 1941 to be used as the permanent site of the Homewood-Brushton YMCA.
