Project Help Clothing Ministry

Project Help Clothing Ministry (PHCM) was birthed in Columbus, Ohio, in the Linden area of the city. The vision, now turned mission, brought tangible, clean and quality items to thousands of families.

Founded by Claire Waters in 1991, Project Help Clothing Ministry is designed to help the physical body as well as the spiritual soul. The ministry networks with schools, churches, HandsOn Central Ohio (formerly FIRST LINK), American Red Cross, Franklin County Human Services and other Ohio organizations that assist families in crisis.

Claire was a role model for other volunteers due to her tenacity, perseverance, courage and commitment to pursue the mission of providing for others. She used scripture as a source of inspiration to clarify her vision to help others.
