The Clara White Mission was founded by Dr. Eartha M. M. White whose compassion for humanity moved her to action. The Mission has existed for more than 100 years, dedicated to serving the needs of the less fortunate in our community. It is the Clara White Mission, and after more than a century of service, we remain devoted to the humanitarian goals pursued so selflessly by our founder.
The Clara White Mission offers more than meals for the hungry and transitional housing for the homeless. We offer hope and a way out of the misery of a life on the streets. Yes, we provide food and housing, but we also offer vocational programs to put people to work. Our goal is to restore those in need to meaningful, dignified lives in the community.
The Museum is a continuing memorial to both Clara White and her daughter, Dr. Eartha White. The remarkable lives and careers of these two women can be experienced through the following virtual walking tour of the museum.
