A decade behind bars stirred Clark’s passion to help others rebuild their lives after prison. Today, he leads an acclaimed nonprofit, Truly Reaching You (T.R.Y.) Ministries, that gives hope and opportunity to incarcerated adults as they rejoin society. The father of five children, Clark broke free of heroin addiction in 1997, with “the healing and deliverance of Jesus Christ.” His ministry has grown from one halfway house in Akron, Ohio, to eight transitional homes – and a support network for more than 1,200 men and women over the years. Most arrive penniless and homeless after serving their prison sentences. Perry provides housing and job training, partnering with local businesses. His faith-based organization also offers discipleship, addiction recovery services, family support and lots of guidance for positive change.
