Teresa Clifford • Vibrant People of Elkhart County

We’re catching up…

Thursday’s Vibrant Person is Teresa Clifford


Teresa Clifford has an affliction. The symptoms can show up anytime. The problem has been self-diagnosed and it is not life-threatening. Chances are it does more good than harm. You see, Teresa has what she calls “musical tourettes.” At any given moment, she can break out in song.

Music has always played an important part in Teresa’s life. In addition to spontaneously breaking out in song, she plays guitar and drums. When she graduated from high school, she moved to Southwest Texas to pursue a career in music. After a few years, Elkhart called her to come home.

Teresa has been Production Manager at Church Community Services’ Soup of Success program for the past year and a half. She works with volunteers daily to serve their guests. Teresa is always happy and welcoming.

Program participants love working with Teresa. She is cheerful, diligent, uplifting and has a great sense of humor. She has even been known to inspire folks to break out in a conga line on occasion.

Teresa is a past board member of the Drug Free Partnership of Elkhart County. She cares deeply about people maintaining their sobriety and living good lives.

Teresa and her wife, Jen have four kids and two grandchildren. They enjoy staying busy.

Teresa likes working in the yard, boating and family dinner nights on Thursdays.

Hey, it’s Thursday! Dinner at Teresa’s!!!
