Summary
Founded in 1919, YWCA's East Cherry Branch houses administrative offices and a variety of programs, including a food bank, housing, and domestic violence support.

The East Cherry Branch originated from the YWCA Culture Club. The Culture Club was founded in 1919 and located at 24th and Howell, providing one of the few public meeting places for the African American community at the time.

In 1947, the space moved to 2820 East Cherry and became the Phyllis Wheatley Branch of YWCA, one of the first interracial YWCA branches in the country. 

Today, this location houses administrative offices and a variety of programs, including a food bank, housing, and domestic violence support.
