Our History

BTWCSC has been embedded in  the lives of African Americans in San Francisco since 1919. During WWI it was called “The Victory Club” an organization with social events, activities and services for African American soldiers during the war. At the end of WWI the staff felt a much needed community service would disappear, so a small group petitioned the Government to turn the remaining funds over to them and began the long history of the Booker T. Washington Community Service Center which opened in 1920. With the expansion of services and programs, BTWCSC has grown to become a center for all. Click here to read more about our Legacy of Victory
