Jaynell (KK) Assmann, APRN-C


KK is the founder of Care Beyond the Boulevard, Inc. She is a Family Nurse Practitioner and has been in the medical field for over 25 years. She served as a Registered Nurse for 20 years before becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2016.

She has a strong desire and drive to provide medical care to those who are marginalized and often overlooked by mainstream society. It is her firm belief that every person should be treated with respect and shown the same concern as we would want for any of our family members.

Brandon D. Pomeroy M.D., F.A.C.S.

Vice President

Brandon has been a urologist in Kansas City for over 20 years. He has always had a heart for the poor and marginalized and has served in many capacities both locally and in places like Mali, Uganda and India. He co-founded Grace Missions Inc in 2012 to help build and support a school Mali. Now with over 400 children it continues to be an oasis of tolerance and learning in a violent and desperately poor area.

Brandon began seeing patients at CBB in the summer of 2016 and feels like it is one of the most important things that he does. He has seen how it has changed and improved lives. He says there’s nothing better than being able to refill a medication, clean a wound, or just provide an empathetic ear. And the consistency that CBB provides to the their patient’s chaotic lives is priceless.

Teresa Cordell


Teresa Cordell, is a wife, and mother to two delightful, almost completely grown daughters whom she routinely still tries to smother with affection.

She also proudly manages the largest equestrian facility in the Midwest, Fire Stables, in Lenexa, Kansas.

Teresa became involved with Care Beyond the Boulevard as the result of a mutual friendship, but it wasn’t until she actually went out on the streets and met the souls living there, that she knew she had to be a part of it. Her primary role is Treasurer and fundraiser, but anyone will tell you that she is actually, snack-manager-in-chief. Teresa believes that contrary to what the current leaders of our country are telling us, we actually are responsible for each other’s safety and well-being, and that compassionate healthcare is right, not a luxury.


Medical Care on the Streets ...

Every week, people in need watch for the big green bus because they know that quality medical care has arrived …

In 2017 Care Beyond The Boulevard registered over 900 patient encounters, treating everything from chronic illnesses such as diabetes, COPD and hypertension, to acute disease such as abscesses, burns, seizures, STD’s and frostbite.

Word quickly began to spread among the homeless and other charitable organizations.

Then, in late 2017 we were graciously donated a school bus and the funds required for restoration. By Spring of 2018 our bus had been converted into a fully functional mobile clinic and was active on the streets! The big green bus has greatly improved our ability to care for patients in need as well as created greater visibility, helping us grow to reach even more patients in need. We are projected to exceed 2000 patient encounters in 2019.
