Jennifer Brown – Founder and Executive Director
The concept for Anew Inspired Change Organization was brought about by an accident that left Jennifer’s father physically and mentally disabled. After watching her father being served by multiple facilities within Maryland, she decided to opt for in-home residential treatment.
With this experience, Jennifer started to investigate and acquire the professional skills necessary to provide residential services to the mentally challenged and developmentally disabled individuals in the community. Thus, Anew Inspired Change Organization has been established.
Jennifer has over 11 years of personal experience in providing services directly related to the human condition and the needs of other individuals. As a mentor to young women, she organizes events, manages related budgets, sets goals, teaches life skills, and provides informal counseling services. She has also served as a mentor to homeless women and those recently released from jail in coordination with many nonprofit organizations.
She has served as President of Jenn Kans, a solid waste management business, for several years. As president, Jennifer had the responsibility of managing its daily business operations, practicing professional decision-making, and providing knowledge in all practical areas of the operations. Through her excellent skills in human resources and fiscal management, positive outcomes and relationships between her staff and the community have been developed.
