Relief Enterprise, Inc. performs services on a federal level and Relief Enterprise of Texas, Inc. performs services for local municipalities and state agencies.

relief enterpriseWe Take our Mission Seriously.

Our mission is to “Create a positive impact on the lives of the disabled through meaningful employment opportunities which provide increased independence and an improved sense of well being.”

We are passionate about what we do and believe a way should be provided for those who want to work when traditional means are not available. Of particular interest is helping our service disabled veterans get back into the workforce. The Founder of Relief Enterprise is a service disabled veteran and this allows our organization to relate to their specific issues and realize the significant obstacles veterans face.



We DevisedA Better Solution

With a belief that there is always a better solution, Clarence and Calvin Williams, a father and son team, established Relief Enterprise in 1996 to service the community and provide jobs for the disadvantaged, including service disabled veterans. Relief is one of 120 non-profit agencies in the State of Texas, and one of 1200 nationally, with government contracts producing under the SourceAmerica/AbilityOne and TIBH/WorksWonders programs. As a member of these programs, long-time suppliers to the Texas State and Federal Governments, Relief provides capable, reliable employees who bring an exceptional work ethic to every project. The company hires employees from within the community that the contract serves to fulfill each contract. Current contracts have an emphasis on janitorial and landscaping services, child development centers (CDCs) and medical facility housekeeping.

Clarence Williams,

As the Founder of Relief Enterprise, Clarence Williams served as President and CEO until his retirement in June 2019. The company was built utilizing his 30+ years of experience working with federal, state and local agencies, specializing in janitorial/custodial, hospital housekeeping and landscape maintenance services.

Mr. Williams, a retired service disabled veteran, has proudly served his country. While in the service he gained invaluable experience as a project manager for base-wide custodial contracts and numerous government projects, and as a manager for purchasing and inventory of supplies and equipment for the United States Government. He put this experience to use as an entrepreneur upon leaving the military.

We already miss having him in the office but wish him all the best in his next chapter of life.

Calvin Williams,
President and COO

Calvin Williams was voted in as President of Relief Enterprise upon his father's retirement in June of 2019. As a hands-on owner/operator, he contributes 25+ years of experience in the building maintenance industry. His role has expanded to oversee all company policies and procedures, and to manage all company accounts including human resources, accounting, payroll, data entry, telecommunications and IT maintenance. Calvin is also responsible for all advancements in technology that Relief has at its disposal.
