After working at Meg’s House for nearly a decade where one of her responsibilities was writing grants, Rebecca Abrahamsen stepped into her new role as executive director of Community Initiatives with one thing on her mind: growing an already effective organization.

“I have a vision of growing all the programs provided by Community Initiatives,” Abrahamsen said. “Space is an issue at both of our locations (Grier Street and United Center for Community Care). I would like to expand our programing and space.”

Community Initiatives currently runs an after school program at their Grier Street facility. There are currently 22 students in the program, which meets in a small room at the facility. The organization also runs a free clinic, Clinica Gratis, at their location in the United Center for Community Care on Phoenix Street.

Abrahamsen would also like to build a community center in Greenwood to “be an example of for how to serve people in our community.” She would also like to be a part of a Crime Watch program in the neighborhood where the Grier Street facility is located.

Abrahamsen began her new role on March 4 and is taking over for Dr. Elizabeth Bethel, who is retiring at the end of the month. Bethel is assisting Abrahamsen in the transition to her role as executive director.

“I see us doing so much in the community,” Abrahamsen said. “I see us strengthening relationships with other agencies and providing our services to more people in need.”
