MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTOR
Recent years have been exciting and rewarding for the Simon Green Atkins Community Development Corporation as we move forward with our efforts to transform Winston-Salem’s MLK Corridor. The past few years proved uniquely significant in our history with the opening of the former Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club building as The Enterprise Center. Not only did the renovation preserve a building closely intertwined with the rich heritage of the southeast neighborhood community in Winston-Salem, but it is now well on its way to becoming a focal point of community interaction and new business development in the MLK Corridor, with impact that reaches across the community.
I encourage you to contact us to discuss how you can be a part of Winston-Salem’s exciting future through the SGACDC.
