ABSTRACT
The article profiles the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) of Metropolitan Tucson, Arizona. The first YMCA was built by the El Paso and Southwest Railroad in 1914 in exchange for the right of way to come to town. Its filtration system was improved upon as YMCA grew, though it was not as good as it could have been. Its unique structure allows the needs to be more quickly identified. One of its invaluable asset is by having volunteers who are so connected to the community.
