Updated: Jun 30, 2021
July 16, 2020, Omaha, NE - Kountze Commons is pleased to announce the selection of Taylor Brown as the new Executive Director. Taylor Brown officially began her new role as Executive Director on February 11th, 2020. The selection to institute Taylor as the Executive Director was made after extensive conversation about the future strategic vision of Kountze Commons.
Taylor Brown is an accomplished fundraising professional and comes to Kountze Commons with extensive fundraising, grant writing, and direct service development and management in the Education and Health and Human Services industries. Brown will be responsible for fundraising, community outreach, developing new community relationships and partnerships, promoting services, and overseeing programmatic developments to ensure overall client, patient, and guest satisfaction.
“The Board of Directors are pleased to have Taylor on board to bring a fresh perspective and approach to local fundraising and relationship development,” said Paul Sum, President of Kountze Endowment True Vision, the Board of Directors overseeing operations at Kountze Commons. “Taylor has notable fundraising experience and an ability to connect with others in the community. We are excited to see Kountze Commons further grow as an organization with her experience.”
Brown will be working in the Kountze Commons building in downtown Omaha strategically located on 26th and Douglas Street at the crossroads between the north and south interstate system along two major bus routes. Kountze Commons was created to serve our city’s most vulnerable people with complex health and life issues. We are leading the nation toward an integrated care model that services the whole person through a unique partnership of four entities co-located in one building: The Del and Lou Ann Weber Free Healing Gift Clinic and a fully licensed pharmacy, Methodist Community Health Clinic, Lutheran Family Services behavioral health, and the Kountze Food Pantry. A typical vulnerable person in our community does not have just one health issue, but rather faces multiple underlying issues – chronic health issues overlaid with food insecurity and behavioral health challenges. Kountze Commons aims to fulfill its mission in the community and beyond by providing crucial life-saving services to those who need it most.
The partnerships and services provided at Kountze Commons not only strengthen the community and the surrounding neighborhoods by nurturing health and nourishing families— Kountze Commons is also a faithful act of solidarity in standing with the most vulnerable in our community.
