Jim Greene reports that while he never went to graduate school, his Arts and Letters undergraduate degree has served him well in his work in counseling, outreach, and program and policy development with homeless adults and families in Boston.
His hard work has not gone unnoticed. In 1999, The Philanthropic Initiative named him a Boston Neighborhood Fellow, an honor that “recognizes individuals of unusual creativity, vision, and initiative” who quietly work to improve the community.
“Jim builds bridges and helps forge connections,” his nominator said. “He is very generous and offers what he can by way of resources, a deep understanding of the streets, and—perhaps most importantly for the people he befriends—time.”
