We provide childcare services at three of our locations that care for children from as young as 6 weeks old to as old as 12 years old. We also provide a monthly hyigene closet that is free and open to the public.

Focusing on our Community

The Odessa Family YMCA knows the importance for its youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. We believe a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. We bring people together of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gap in community needs, and believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Youth Sports

At the Odessa Family YMCA, our youth sports programs emphasize fun, participation, safety, teamwork, healthy competition and family involvement. Kids as young as 3-years-old can participate in specific sports programs. All teams are organized on a neighborhood basis as much as possible and will practice once or twice a week. All practice sites, days, and times for each sport are determined by the coach at the coaches workshop. Game equipment is provided and the rules are modified to accommodate the young athletes.


IdentoGO by IDEMIA provides a wide range of identity-related services with our primary service being the secure capture and transmission of electronic fingerprints for employment, certification, licensing and other verification purposes – in professional and convenient locations.
