Not For Profit
Monroe, New York 10950
The YMCA of Middletown is a community based not for profit organization dedicated to putting Judeo–Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
Our YMCA Association began its service to the City of Middletown in 1882, and over the subsequent 136 years, expanded to serve all of Orange County and Southern Sullivan County. Although our name indicates our historical beginnings at our main branch at 81 Highland Avenue in Middletown, it does not adequately reflect all that we do within a 30-mile radius of our association’s headquarters.
Currently, we operate primarily out of three facilities including our main branch and association headquarters in Middletown known as the YMCA of Middletown, the South Orange Family YMCA (nicknamed “SOFY”) in Monroe, and The Center For Youth Programs in Middletown- the home of our First Step Preschool, our summer day camp in Middletown and many other youth programs.
While the Goshen Art League continues to expand its ranks and explores new and innovative programs, the mission at its core remains the same as the original:
To provide members opportunities to exhibit their work, to allow members to offer workshops and demonstrations, and to provide public awareness of the artists in our community.
The Goshen Art Group eventually became the Goshen Art League and has continued to grow and evolve through the years. At present there are over 75 members, mostly visual artists, who continue to successfully show and sell their work in many similar venues as their original counterparts, including eateries, banks, health care facilities, and Goshen Town Hall, among others. The sidewalk art shows have transformed into the highly successful Goshen Art Walk, founded and sponsored by the Village of Goshen and administered by the League.
