Our team is a crucial component to the amazing success and incredible stories and lives touched by All in Need.
Autumn Green, Executive Director
Autumn is the founder of All in Need, Family Support. She holds a degree in Business Administration from Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon and is near completion of courses for her Bachelors in Early Child Development, with the goal of obtaining a multi-subject teaching credential--specifically in mild to moderate as well as moderate to severe disabled classroom.
Autumn’s own family story is the reason All in Need, Family Support began. Her oldest son has ADHD and Psoriasis. She has spent countless time in the school office and talking on the phone with teachers about her son’s lack of focus. Autumn’s youngest son has Aspergers, and she struggled to find the support and treatment Yaakov needed; feeling alone and isolated. Autumn was met with dead-ends at every turn, and frustration and hopelessness threatened to overwhelm her. After years of perseverance, the Green’s life has settled into a routine, and Yaakov is doing better, thanks to multiple rounds of speech therapy, OT, PT, many dedicated tutors and teachers, and the support, love, and discipline of his family.
Autumn continues to support and advocate for both her boys, while balancing an active life. Leaning on her faith and experience, Autumn decided to create a support system for other families with special needs children, and All in Need, Family Support was born. Recently relocating back to Oregon, Autumn is taking monthly trips to California to continue to support families with special needs in the Bay area. She is also training her son's English Cream Retriever to be his service dog. Autumn is a dedicated runner, running for a boy who has Autism. Autumn sends the medals from each of her completed races to him in New Jersey. If she isn't working, supporting her children, or running, you can find a kindle in her hands reading one of Debbie Viguie's latest books. She loves spending time hiking with her husband of 20 years.
Autumn was honored by the Mount Unified School District Community Advisory Committee on Special Education receiving the “You Make A Difference Award” in 2010. She received the Jane Harmarn-Frisbie award given by the Soroptismist in 2014 and was also honored during Woman’s History Month by Susan Bonilla, California Assemblywoman in District 14.
Angie Reese, Chair
Angie was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota and attended college in Wisconsin where she earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology. Growing up in Minnesota, she discovered a passion for giving back to her community. She volunteered in various capacities for many groups including the Animal Humane Society, St. Stephens Homeless Shelter, Harvest Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity. Her career has included holding many positions in several relocation firms, and becoming Client Services Director for an international relocation company specializing in government contracts and bids. She has traveled extensively in her career and has been privileged to meet and work with individuals from all corners of the globe.
Through a chance meeting at a music festival in Wisconsin, she met her future husband, Mike, and after a long distance romance, she relocated to the Bay area. Together they have three children, Jack, Josie, and Jorja. Jack’s diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder brought new challenges and opportunities alike. It was at We Care’s summer camp where Angie and Mike first met Autumn and learned of the wonderful organization of All in Need. Her son, Jack, instantly bonded with Autumn and gave her the nickname she was destined to have—Awesome!
Becoming actively involved in the special needs community has brought out a new focus and drive in Angie to help other families access the services, support and community that is crucial to their success and happiness.
