The Mary and Frances Youth Center opened on Sept. 28, 2007 and was underwritten by Michael Fraizer, former CEO of Genworth Financial Inc., and his wife Elizabeth. Their support led to the construction of the center on the VCU Monroe Park campus along West Cary Street.
The center consists of two private tennis courts and classrooms designed for youth programming and youth-centered training.
