Established in 1992 - The Jesse Parker Williams Foundation traces its origins to Cora Best Taylor Williams' bequest in 1924 establishing the Jesse Parker Williams Hospital to honor her late husband. Her intention was to relieve human suffering and distress, and her specific direction was to assist women and children with medical care.
