In the year 1912, a Japanese organization of churches and Issei (Soko Bukai) set up a building to facilitate the social needs of women and young girls in the society. As years proceeded the facility (Japanese YWCA) extended its service to more than three churches who were the founder members of Soko Bukia. It is formally built with bricks decorated with tiles .on the front side of their glass windows This followed a decision to purchase a building at 1830 Sutter Street. Since the immigrant was prohibited from owning a building in the U.S by the Alien Law the Japanese YWCA sought help from the San Francisco. YCWA on behave of minority Japanese citizens in America formed the organization to advocate racial equality. Uniquely YWCA sees to it that there was ethical, moral, and political democracy within the US during the second world war.
