Featured many times on Channel 9, Cable TV Montgomery, Black Enterprise magazine, the Gazette and Globe newspapers, Judith Clark is a woman committed to doing God's work, and loves helping people regardless of their beliefs. She takes her mission seriously! A native of Philadelphia, PA, Judith moved to Maryland nearly 30 years ago. Although the product of a good upbringing she made some wrong choices that lead her down a path of self-destruction.
After many years of fighting a seemingly losing battle with getting her life back on track, and after many relentless prayers from her Mother, others and herself, she finally was able to surrender to the will of God for her life. The power of sin and darkness in her life was broken! She was able to be set free from all the brokenness in her life, and began to walk the road less travelled.
Judith knows she was changed to give back freely. She is a woman of vision, direction and purpose. One of her favorite sayings is "My former pain is going to bring gain - to others!"
That's why she was open to the call of God on her life when He beckoned her to begin a women's fellowship in June of 2001. In obedience, and with 35 women present at the first meeting, the fellowship, Winning Souls for Christ Women's Fellowship, under the umbrella of Women Who Care Ministries, Inc. began to grow tremendously. The ministry quickly expanded to begin helping men, women and children; people from all walks of life, faiths, and backgrounds to get back on their feet in the areas they had fallen. Currently in its 15th year of operation, to date, over 50,000 women men and children have attended the monthly meetings and conferences. Countless numbers have been impacted by the service areas the ministry provides assistance through.
Additionally, thousands of children and families have been assisted through WWCM's safety net services.
Under Judith's leadership, Women Who Care Ministries continues to grow into an even more vibrant outreach vehicle, geared towards community activities to help those who are homeless, in transition, incarcerated, broken in spirit, hungry, and to those who simply need a helping hand, in any way. Many are joining WWCM daily, in partnership, to ensure the needs and goals of this awesome ministry are met.
In addition to being the Executive Director, empowerment speaker, writer, poet and business owner, Judith is an evangelist, a sister, a mentor, a joy coach and a friend. She did not forget where she came from. Her humorous, upbeat, enthusiastic, passionate spirit is contagious and this attracts many to her.
Although she is celebrated all throughout the metropolitan area for her terrific comeback from hardships, including bankruptcy, and for her phenomenal transition from homelessness to home(s) ownership, what people note as most significant is her philanthropic heart of love and service to the community.
