For a century, the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center has stood as a guiding light for African Americans in Minneapolis. It has earned the trust of the community, serving as a place of cherished memories for grandparents and a vital resource for parents. This is a collective space, purpose-built for the community's needs, consistently adapting and evolving alongside its members.


Phyllis Wheatley Community Center strives to serve as a constant for families in our Northside community, a place they can go when they need help, hope, and healing; a place where they know their children are safe, learning, growing, and building skills for better lives; a place that belongs not to those who work here, but to the community. 

Phyllis Wheatley Community Center has, for 100 years, been a beacon for African Americans in Minneapolis. It's a place they trust, their parents turned to, and that their grandparents have fond memories of. IIt's a place that is theirs, collectively, built for them and always adapting and evolving alongside them.
