The Phyllis Wheatley Heritage Center is highly valued for its historical significance as the home of the Phyllis Wheatley Branch of the YWCA, which served African-American women and girls during the time of segregation prior to the merger with the St. Louis branch. As such, it is an important piece of our history. At this time, the Phyllis Wheatley Center is used exclusively for YWCA Metro St. Louis activities and is not available for rental or use by the public. This is a decision based on resources and the best stewardship of our funding. While it is no longer available to the community at large, please know that its conservation is intact.
