Atmore YMCA

Chartered in 1995, the Atmore YMCA operates out of the iconic old high school. The YMCA helps nurture the potential of every child and teen and improve the community’s well-being. It is a place where neighbors of all ages come together, where kids learn practical and social skills and develop positive values. Health is fostered and passions old and new are pursued in a supportive environment.

“Our goals are to teach honesty, teamwork, integrity and to be able to work with peers and to learn to resolve problems by working together. We’ve had some difficult times with the economy. Without Poarch being a good neighbor, the YMCA may not exist. Having their support allows us to continue.”
