Jordan Yagiela


Jordan is the executive director of NW Goldberg Cares. Over the past year, she has been able to triple the operating budget of the grassroots neighborhood revitalization non-profit. She has led the implementation of three placemaking projects in the neighborhood transforming formerly blighted land into usable public spaces. She currently is working to restore a formerly blighted house purchased from the Detroit Land Bank Authority to live in. Jordan is aware that her experiences as a white woman raised in the suburbs are different than of a long-time Detroit resident. She is committed to understanding varying perspectives and working collaboratively to find the best solutions to neighborhood issues. The Michigan State University graduate aims to use her passion for community and economic development to revitalize the NW Goldberg neighborhood.
