Our vision is to rebuild and preserve communities by facilitating and bridging community approaches to sustainable Educational, Entrepreneurial, and Housing initiatives. Legacy Bridge NC was conceived and incorporated in 1996, with the aim of addressing the needs of the African American Community and other historically oppressed communities in Winston-Salem and North Carolina in the areas of Education, Entrepreneurship and Housing.

How We're Bridging & Preservering The Community

As Legacy Bridge NC expands into the development of our missions to enhance entrepreneurship and innovative housing ideas, we will do so while simultaneously connecting with what we have learned from our Educational arm.

Provide Viable Educational Paths For Students And Their Families

Legacy Bridge birthed its initial endeavor to focus on Winston-Salem’s K-12 African American children determined to be “at risk” and under threat of entering the “school to prison pipeline.” This concern was and is the greatest threat to African American children and their communities. 

Legacy Bridge’s Carter G Woodson School (CGWS) was formed to ameliorate this threat and provide viable educational paths for students and their families.
