ESR was chartered in 1964 and has served the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County community for more than 50 years, working to eliminate poverty and homelessness, and help people help themselves. Like its sister Community Action Agencies (CAA’s) across the nation, ESR was born out of Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty and the Equal Opportunity Act of 1964, the economic twin to the Civil Rights Act. In North Carolina, ESR was one of the original 11 CAA’s supported by Governor Terry Sanford’s North Carolina Fund.
