Introducing Our New Executive Director:
Autumn Frey
In mid-July of this year, YAP welcomed Autumn Frey as our new Executive
Director and we are thrilled to have her as part of the YAP family.
Thus far, Autumn appears to be settling into the role quite comfortably, stating
“Since I started with YAP, I have been able to get to know the amazing staff we have and I am
excited to see how we will be able to grow the organization. I am privileged to take on this
new endeavor.”
Autumn brings with her invaluable experience, having previously been a director of
non-profits specializing in domestic and sexual violence as well as individuals with disabilities.
Before entering the realm of nonprofits, Autumn started out in the printing industry before
leaving in order to help others. Armed with a degree in Psychology and Business
Management, she started to work with individuals and families going through crisis situations.
This experience in advocating for those she worked with and ensuring they got the
support they needed makes her uniquely positioned and a natural fit to take over at the helm
of the Yellowstone AIDS Project. "We are grateful to have been able to quickly work through
the hiring process and fill this key role," said Debbie Brown, Chair of the Yellowstone AIDS Project Board of Directors. "Having
Autumn here provides stability and leadership such that YAP can continue to serve its clients."
In addition to Autumn’s praise of our staff, she highlights the supportive nature of our Board of Directors, who are all
dedicated to our cause and willing to help when asked. She also has taken a shine to our clients stating “I have met some pretty
amazing people and look forward to getting to know even more.”
We are so pleased Autumn has joined us and we invite everyone to stop by and say hello. We truly believe that she will be
a valuable asset to YAP for years to come.

Board of Directors
Thank You Becky!!!
The staff at YAP would like to take a moment to recognize Becky Taylor and thank
her for her relentless positivity and hard work during the time she was our Interim
Executive Director. For 2 months, Becky worked tirelessly and never complained about a
thing. We all knew she was an amazing Client Services Coordinator but she was also a wonderful leader for our entire team and we thank her for her willingness to step up to the
plate. We are endlessly grateful that she put in as
many hours as it took to ensure that YAP continued
to run as smoothly as possible as our Board of
Directors searched to find the best possible fit for
us in a new Executive Director.
