urgent services administrator

Jolly Rohrs

I enjoy working at Concern because I can assist with filling basic needs for many people in our community.  I enjoy all the dedicated, hard working volunteers who make my job work.  When I'm not at work you'll find me at a grandkid's sporting event, sitting at my sewing machine making a quilt, fishing for crappie or gardening.  On occasion I love to go Junking.  I am fascinated by the history of my past found in the antique stores waiting for someone to buy the item to take home and use it as a decorator piece!

I love working at Concern because I get to exercise my passion for putting all the numbers where they belong.  I also have the pleasure of going home knowing that I am part of a great mission.  There's no better feeling!  When I'm not at work you'll find me playing with my wonderful children (Kennedy and Jace), attending their many sporting and school events.



executive director

Jenny Ballard

I was born in Dearborn, Michigan as one of four children.  I coached and played soccer in High School and College.  I graduated from Adrian College in 1999 with a BA in Human Services and Psychology.  I was offered a full time position with Livingston County Mental Health upon graduation as a Community Based Social Worker.  In 2003 we moved to Bartlesville, Oklahoma to be with my husband's family, I worked for Washington County DHS for almost 3 years; however, once our daughter was born I decided to become a SAHM.  In 2010 I was hired by Express Employment and was the Branch Manager until April of 2019 when I accepted the position as the Executive Director at Concern.  I feel blessed to work for Concern and I love being able to help those in need in this area.  In my free time I prefer to be outdoors as much as possible, camping, swimming, and hiking.


The Mission of Churches United for Community CONCERN is to provide compassionate support to individuals and families needing assistance.
