Voices for Children in Nebraska is pleased to announce that Aubrey Mancuso has been named the organization’s new Executive Director.
She will replace Carolyn Rooker, who had served Voices for Children for five years following the twenty-three years of leadership by founding Executive Director, Kathy Bigsby Moore. Aubrey brings great institutional knowledge; she currently holds the position of Policy Coordinator for Economic Stability and Health and has been with Voices for Children for six years.
“Under Aubrey’s leadership, Voices for Children has achieved significant improvements for families struggling to survive, let alone thrive, in Nebraska’s economy. Some of those improvements include helping to expand access to quality affordable child care for working families and ensuring that all pregnant mothers have access to prenatal care”, said Board President Eric Nelson. Aubrey’s high quality of work, reliability, and in-depth understanding of children’s issues are well known in Nebraska, and make her an ideal candidate to lead Voices for Children’s next chapter.
Prior to joining Voices for Children, Aubrey worked for a non-profit providing service to chronically homeless adults with mental illness in New York. She also worked for the City of New York’s Food Stamp Program and United States Senator Jeff Bingaman. She holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University and a B.A. from Creighton University.
“I am excited to step into this new role and build on Voices’ strong legacy of building pathways to opportunity for all Nebraska kids.” Mancuso said.
