Shades Valley

About us.

Welcome to the Shades Valley Y

Located on Highway 31 in Homewood, the Shades Valley YMCA was one of the first suburban branches built, in 1968. The facility received a major renovation in 2012 and continues to serve the community through adult health and wellness, school age childcare, active older adult and aquatic programming.
