In 2006, Clara went on her first mission trip to Africa. It was during the night in her hotel room following the day’s ministry and as she reflects on the day, she realized that so many of the women did not have a Bible. Clara had left her original family since she was 12 years old, but the Bible her mother gave her became her most cherished possession. She then asked God how could women learn about God without a personal relationship through the Word of God. Clara will never forget God instructing her to provide Bibles to those who have none.
Therefore, her first assignment was to use her income tax for that year to purchase her first 50 copies of the Bible from Amazon which became her tradition. Years later in Winder -Barrow County in the United States as a property manager, she used her office as a meeting place to teach the Word of God and financial freedom to first time home buyers and tenants who wished to own a home. Clara began to extend her outreach to the neighborhood and often marked out a location at a set day and time. She would give copies of her book and a Bible to anyone who stopped by with counseling and prayers as requested.
In February 2010, Clara filed and received her non-profit status. In spite of her IRS accredited 501c3 status, Clara continued to spend her personal income on supporting people in need. At that time as God blessed her she began to partner and became a member of a charitable company called “NAEIR”, and other companies called; Apparel Deals a fashion wholesale; Spring Import; 247 Fashion Store; Pac import; and more. There she spent her own money to purchase truck loads of items for the foundation which added to her outreach in which she usually picked a location. Eventually, God lead Clara to Gainesville, Georgia where the foundation had a physical address on April 2013.
The location address was 176 Martin Luther King JR Boulevard SE Suite 400 Gainesville, GA 30501. It was at the location that God added to her vision: 1. Hold a support group for women with topic ranging from substance abuse to freedom and marital issues etc. 2. Help people get back to school or back to work through her assistance of paying their GED certification and mentorship. 3. Allow other ministries to hold their meetings in the location. Several other women believed in her mission and through their suggestions & support, she began to take clothing donations.
Shortly after, Clara went back to pursue her second Master’s degree at Liberty University and with less income, she was unable to fund the foundation which had then expanded to more than she could fund out of pocket. She then began to run the ministry out of storage while she completed her one-year residency as Chaplain at the North Georgia health system in Gainesville, Ga. Using her saved salary, she came back to reestablish the foundation with added computer literacy classes. The current address is 675 EE Butler Pkwy SE Ste G Gainesville GA. 30501. or P.O. Box 588 Gainesville Ga. 30503.
