Perry Clark

2014 Recipient


Fowler-Larson Allies Award

Perry Clark was born and raised in the Akron area. His personal experience of working to assimilate back into the community after being released from prison has given him the passion to lead and guide others through this same process. As founder of T.R.Y. (Truly Reaching You) Ministries, Clark trains, employs, and mentors men recently released from jail who are undergoing their own reintegration process in the community. In 1999 he started his own business, Common Investor Home Remodeling. In 2006, Clark opened T.R.Y.’s first halfway house providing men a supportive environment to live and grow in upon their release. He is married and has five children.
