Sunshine Ministries Directors,
Jim and Carol Clarkson

Carol ClarksonAfter working together in business for many years, Jim and Carol transitioned to their roles at Sunshine in 1996 to begin their “mid-life” career.

When Jim and Carol became the directors of Sunshine Ministries the ministry programs included the homeless shelter and food pantry. Through the years the outreach has grown to include the Resident Recovery Program, the Family C.A.R.E. Program for women, and many youth programs including a summer camp and preschool.

Jim and Carol find great joy in serving the St. Louis community as directors of Sunshine Ministries. Looking back on their 20 years of service, they share, “There is nothing more rewarding than working with our excellent staff and partnering with our faithful donors to see lives transformed, families reunited and children filled with hope for a brighter future.”
