Jen

Jen Young

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Jen came to us from the renewable energy field where she managed wind turbine sites in the Midwest. After volunteering for All Hands and Hearts, a disaster recovery nonprofit, in Puerto Rico toward the end of 2018, she decided that giving her time and wide range of skills to those in need was immensely fulfilling and has since refocused her life toward helping people rebuild their lives and their homes. In 2019, she joined All Hands and Hearts in Houston, TX as a site supervisor to continue working with families recovering from the hurricanes in the Gulf.

 

Throughout her wind career and into her work with nonprofits, Jen passionately works to analyze situations and drive change when she sees an opportunity for growth. Watching those around her grow and develop delights Jen, and she strives to empower people whenever she has the chance. When not helping humans, Jen spends her time as a furkid foster mom and animal welfare advocate. Jen serves as our Outreach Coordinator.

Emily Alfred

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Emily is an inspirational human whose calming demeanor cuts through all the chaos that she may find as she continues to live her life in a non-traditional and impactful way. She constantly strives to know, understand, and holistically experience her ever-changing surroundings and to leave them better than she found them. Professionally, Emily has most recently worked for the disaster relief nonprofit; All Hands and Hearts in Puerto Rico and Texas. 

 

Living life as a traveler, the nagging ideal of a socially acceptable adulthood has crept into her mind over and over, but her time in post-Maria, Puerto Rico provided a different perspective and vision of what a successful life could be. On the horizon she sees a life filled with love for all living things, advocacy in the face of injustice, a lot of hard work, a beautiful view, and the ocean not too far away.
