Lakewest Family YMCA

The Lakewest YMCA was establised in 2000 through a unique partnership between the YMCA and the Dallas Housing Authority, who shared a common vision of providing a community center in the heart of West Dallas. The Lakewest Y is in collaboration with Head Start of Greater Dallas, Dallas Police Department and Parkland's Women Clinic which all share the property owned by Dallas Housing Authority. Today, Lakewest Family YMCA members enjoy a variety of health and wellness classes and more than 20 programs for youth, adults and teens.  Through the generous contributions of the community and members to our Annual Campaign, Lakewest YMCA provided over 100,000 scholarships and financial assistance in 2012 to ensure that no one is turned away for their inability to pay for programs and services.
