Allison Alaimo: 12 Who Made a Difference in Central Mass in 2012

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

 

She’s not a soldier, but every day Allison Alaimo of Worcester fights to ensure the country’s service men and women are well cared for when they return from war. Allison is the Director of Finance and Development for Veterans Inc., a full service non-profit organization that helps veterans and their families in need throughout New England. She volunteered at the organization 10 years ago, and soon began working there full time.

During her time at the shelter, Allison has assisted in more than quadrupling the agency’s operating budget by bringing in millions of dollars in funding for new programs for veterans, military service members and their families. This includes the state’s first housing program for women veterans and their dependent children and the development of programs that replicate the shelter’s successful service model all around New England.

Originally from California, Allison has made Worcester her home and the community is better for it. Allison defines success by doing what you love, and she has an endless amount of passion for her job.

Allison was recognized in the Worcester Business Journal’s 40 Under Forty in 2008, and in 2007 received the “Unsung Heroine Award” for Worcester from the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women.
