Community Outreach Coordinator (they/them)

Autumn Yael joined JSS in the Spring of 2022 and is grateful to be part of this phenomenal team. After many years of cooking professionally, they wanted to transition from hospitality to human services. They hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Community and Environmental Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has been engaged with community organizing and mutual aid efforts throughout their time in Madison.

They are passionate about continuing a housing first approach with newly arrived families and individuals, and eager to bring more of the community into the process of refugee resettlement. Autumn Yael still often cooks at home, and loves being in nature with their life partner and 2-year-old Pitbull, Romy.
