The Clara White Mission was founded in 1904, but traces its origins to 1880s Jacksonville where former slave, Clara English White fed hungry neighbors from her two-room house on Clay street. Over the years her daughter, nationally recognized humanitarian Dr. Eartha M. M. White, molded the labor of love into a thriving social agency.
