This redeveloped YMCA unites the right minds and resources for community interaction, education, healthy living, and our life-changing programs. The unique design celebrates the legacy of YMCA Anthony Bowen as the first African American Y, founded in 1853, along with its ability to adapt and serve the U Street/ Shaw community’s evolving needs.
