CAROLINE W. HILL
Caroline Williams Hill was born in Lake Worth, FL to Jacob and Ruth Williams’s resident of Riviera Beach, FL. She is the seventh of eight children. She attended Washington Elementary and Howard L. Watkins for grade and middle school. During middle school she learned she was very talented in track and field, which had taken her farther than she had expected. She attended Palm Beach Gardens High School where the entire four years she continued to run track and field. Not knowing how good she was, she became county and conference champion all four years, and set a state record for Florida. She achieved many awards and trophies throughout high school, and was Channel Twelve athlete of the week. She received a four year scholarship to Alabama A&M University in Huntsville Alabama. During her short stay, she majored in child psychology hoping to help the youth. Caroline, a mother of three, was married at the age of 22. Within the thirteen years she was divorced and homeless. Not knowing of any resources in the community she lived from place to place on government assistance for two and a half years. Finally after receiving assistance through the Red Cross her family was able to obtain a place of their own. Now a student of F.A.U majoring in Social Work.
Caroline’s experiences are in substance abuse, mental health, Minority AIDS Network Chair, Florida prevention planning group: State Representative for Palm Beach County for two years, Human Resource and Management, evaluation program improvement and capacity building, Support Group Facilitator. In 1993 she started working for the Children’s Place and Conner’s nursery providing care for abused and neglected HIV positive children. Working with children from newborn to 10 years of age made a great impact on her life which led her to help other people in need. In 1994, she joined United Deliverance Church of God in Christ, while learning more about the word of God, her bishop, Lewis E. White, started an HIV/AIDS Outreach Ministry. In 1999, she traveled city to city in Palm Beach County, offering free HIV counseling and testing, while feeding them physical food and also ministering in the spirit. Seeing so many people affected by poverty, drugs, and alcohol abuse opened her eyes to the needs for the people in the different communities. Volunteering her time even in the late night hours allowed her to reach people who felt as if the community has given up on them. In the year 2000, United Deliverance Community Resource Center received a small grant from the state to help African Americans throughout Palm Beach County. While working full time and volunteering additional time for United Deliverance Community Resource Center she provided HIV/AIDS education and services to inmates at the Palm Beach County jail. Caroline worked 40 hours a week plus volunteered after work to make sure the needs of the people were met.
In 2005, she was ordained as Evangelist and married her new husband Theodore Hill, Sr. In 2011, with the support of her husband, God gave Caroline the vision to open up her own agency. God gave Theodore the name he wanted them to use: Heart, Health, & Healing Ministries, Inc. (Triple “H” Community Center). Being a nonprofit agency has its challenges and rewards, but Caroline would not have it any other way.
In, December 2011 Triple H Ministries, Inc. open their doors to the community. With little to no funding we were able to assist the under served population in Palm Beach County with Free HIV/ AIDS Testing/ Counseling and other wrap around services that were needed. We go out throughout Palm Beach County on our Mobile Unit offering Free HIV services to individuals who can’t come to the building and have late working ours. In 2014, Triple H Ministries. Inc. received the “Making the Difference Award” from Palm Beach County HIV Care Council. We give food pantry and clothing when available.
