About Brian & Gretchen

Brian & Gretchen Colleran have spent most of their lives in the Cleveland area and now reside on the near East Side with their three children. Brian’s passion for the senior population and individuals with developmental disabilities prompted him to start his own long term care business in 2000, which flourished into a successful enterprise. He now serves as a mentor and consultant for multiple companies that still actively care for seniors. Building state of the art nursing facilities that provide top notch care to their residents is just one of the many initiatives he brought to fruition and that legacy continues today.

In addition to giving back to the Senior Community and enriching the lives of local children, Brian and Gretchen share a love of the arts, nature preservation and animals. Along with her focus on the Foundation, Gretchen loves being a mother and spending time with her family. Brian has many interests outside of his successful business which include music, art & philanthropy. Brian is always looking to contribute & invest in the creation of local job opportunities.
