Nick Brown Named Executive Director

Dear Friends of the Religious Coalition,

After a wide-ranging search conducted by Manpower beginning in December 2016 and with the affirmation of the Board of Directors of the Religious Coalition of Emergency Human Needs, we have agreed that Mr. Nick Brown, who has served as Director of Programs and Client Services for the past seven years, should be the new Executive Director.

Mr. Brown’s experience in serving the homeless and needy with the Coalition in his current capacity provides excellent credentials and the good judgement needed to fulfill the vision, mission and strategic direction for the years ahead.  He has been serving as the Temporary Chief Operating Officer for the Coalition since the retirement of Rev. Brian Scott at the end of December and will assume his new role on May 1, 2017.

Nick brings to the Coalition an excellent relationship already established with City and County partners, faith leaders, faithful volunteers, and other community service providers.  He is well respected in the community and well known even among many of the clients who depend on the care and compassion demonstrated by the Coalition.

Nick grew up in the Frederick County, is a graduate of Walkersville High School and was the Manager of Outreach and Transportation at the Frederick Community Action Agency before joining the staff of the Coalition in 2010.

I trust you will affirm our decision to choose Mr. Brown as the new Executive Director of the Coalition.  We believe he is an excellent choice to carry on the mission of the Coalition now in its 36th year.  As Executive Director he will represent the broader community as we seek to make a positive impact on the lives of those who are homeless and those whose emergency human needs can be addressed through our collective effort.

Thank you for your continued support of the Coalition as Nick leads the operations and provides an advocate voice on behalf of the Coalition for solutions to homelessness and homeless prevention.


David Rogers, President of the Religious Coalition
