YMCA plans transformational project for Roebuck

The YMCA of Greater Birmingham is partnering with Habitat for Humanity and Christ Health Center on a transformational project for the Roebuck community.

Renovations to the existing 25,000-square-foot Northeast YMCA will create a community resource center for local residents and include programming for youth, teens and seniors. The facility will expand its pre-K early learning program with two additional classrooms and early learning opportunities to accommodate 54 children.

Habitat for Humanity will bring 22 new single-family homes to the existing 8-acre YMCA property. When complete, the well-lit, walkable neighborhood will include community gardens, playgrounds and a multi-purpose sports field.

Christ Health Center aims to address the health inequities in Roebuck and surrounding areas through a new clinic that will include up to 15 exam rooms and an onsite lab.

CCR Architecture & Interiors has been selected to help lead the project.

“I am grateful for those who joined us to step up as a community and be a part of bringing these life-changing programs, services, and facilities to the families in Roebuck. It’s truly been a collaborative process, and one that we hope sets a benchmark for further progress.”

Charles DeBardeleben, YMCA Campaign Chair
