Public Affairs Speaker Series: Homelessness in Boston
October 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Learn about Boston’s homeless community and the public services available to them with Mary Ann Ponti, director of outreach programs at St. Anthony Shrine.
Ponti, a licensed drug and alcohol counselor, has been working in human services serving the homeless population of Boston since 2009. In addition to her role at St. Anthony, she is a counselor at Pine Street Inn in the South End, and serves on the security staff at St. Francis House in downtown Boston.
Before working with Boston’s most vulnerable population, Ponti lived in New York City and worked in financial services. Now a 16-year resident of Downtown Crossing, she enjoys living at the intersection of business, residents, social services, and local and state government.
