A Brief History
In 1965 CACEHR was established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 when President Johnson launched the "War on Poverty" when we became chartered by Ohio's Secretary of State.
As the anti-poverty agency governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees that represents public, private, and clientele sectors of Erie, Huron & Richland Counties we continue to be committed to our mission:
