Park City Initiative Corp. exists because of one woman's cry for help! In 1999, the late Jean Williams asked her daughter Mary Green to help her get more food to give to the families that would come to her for help. In response to her mother's request, Mary contacted the Connecticut Food Bank and a partnership was formed to begin securing more food.
Bishop Jean Williams was raised in Coopers, West Virginia. She later moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut where she married and raised her family. From a child, she was always full of ambition, zeal and love for people. Her Holly Street home, the original location for the pantry, was also a licensed Day Care where she taught and cared for numerous children. She was licensed by the Department of Mental Health to provide foster care to children and adults. Her home was always open to the neighborhood children and families to find comfort and food. She was the founder of Trinity Church of God which was later incorporated as Bishop Jean Outreach Ministries. She mentored and inspired hundreds of young people, ministers and pastors to fulfill their dreams. Park City Initiative Corp. and all of it''s programs continue from a legacy of over thirty years of ministry started by the late Bishop Jean Williams.
“There’s still a lot of work to be done, and God is looking for people who will step out, take a bold stand and do the work God has called them to do!”
