Michael Vance, Vice-President, Field Operations, Action for Boston Community Development, has been recognized recently by Noble & Greenough School in Dedham and Massachusetts Council of Human Services Providers for his significant contributions to the Greater Boston community. Vance is a Dorchester resident who lived for many years in Mattapan.
A longtime community leader, Vance has served on the boards of several community and social justice organizations and currently oversees ABCD’s 13 neighborhood centers that provide tens of thousands of low-income Boston residents with access to housing, food pantries, child care, fuel assistance, job readiness programs and more.
“It’s no surprise to me that Mike has been honored by these two organizations,” said John J. Drew, ABCD President/CEO. “His tireless work on behalf of the 100,000 people ABCD serves each year makes a difference every day in the lives of those struggling for a foothold on the ladder of economic opportunity.”
