Elizabeth Doyle, a Savin Hill resident and deputy director of the city’s Supportive Housing Department, was recently named “Municipal Partner of the Year” by the Providers’ Council, the largest statewide association of private, community-based care-giving organizations.
An employee with the city since 1991, Doyle received the award at the organization’s 38th-Annual Champions for Change convention held at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston.
“I want to congratulate Elizabeth on her award and thank her for all the hard work she does on behalf of those in need of housing,” Sheila Dillon, director of the Department of Neighborhood Development, said in a statement. “I am proud of the work our Supportive Housing Division does – currently, Boston has the highest sheltering rate in the nation, with nearly 97 percent of Boston’s homeless sheltered.”
Doyle was one of 13 awardees recognized at the yearly ceremony, which highlights the accomplishments of individuals and organizations that help support and promote the human services sector.
She was nominated for the award by Nancy Mahan, senior vice president of Bay Cove Human Services.
Doyle first joined the Department of Neighborhood Development as a finance specialist and eventually moved up the ranks until her recent promotion to the deputy director position.
