Meet BNFEC: Karen Cowan

Meet our clinical director and owner, Karen Cowan. She was raised in Detroit but moved to Asheville when she was 16 years old.  Although she moved around quite a bit, she never really found a place that felt like home like Asheville did. She opened the foster care agency in 2004, and named it after her beautiful daughter Brandi, in 2010. She is a mother to her 7 year old grandson Joseph and an awesome boss. Let’s meet her!
