Our mission as a faith-based organisation is to “demonstrate the love of Christ in practical and tangible ways to young people and the wider community in Exeter and the surrounding area”.

YMCA Exeter is a dynamic local Christian charity that is part of the national YMCA Federation. Our work focuses on providing supported housing for homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged young people, and on delivering a range of Community Projects meeting the needs of disadvantaged people. We operate both in Exeter, and increasingly across the northern half of Devon.

In all our work, we aim to model ourselves on Jesus Christ, who is the guiding force in all that we do. As our ethos statement states, our mission is “to work together with those we serve, particularly young people, demonstrating Christ’s love through practical service so that people and communities can flourish”. Every member of the staff team and Board is fully committed to this mission.
