HISTORICAL SKETCH

The Center originated in 1888 with establishment of the Baltimore YWCA's "Helping Hand Society." In 1911, the YWCA appointed a "Foreign Communities Secretary," and an International Institute Building was opened in 1919. In 1929, the Institute became independent of the YWCA; it did not prosper, however, and an effort was made to revive the YWCA's nationality group program. In 1935, the East Baltimore Center was renamed the International Center of the YWCA, and in 1970, the Center moved to the central YWCA building in Baltimore.
