North End community hero Rebecca Mattson is among 28 honored for their contributions to the community at the Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) 36th Annual Community Awards Dinner on Friday, October 29 at the Seaport World Trade Center. The dinner celebrates the voluntary efforts of individuals who work tirelessly to address and placate the plight of Boston’s underprivileged communities through voluntary leadership and service.

The North End/West End NSC acknowledges Rebecca Mattson for devoting her time, energy and talents to bettering the welfare of those less fortunate.

Until earlier this year, Rebecca was the Chief Operating Officer of Raymond Property Company in Boston. During her tenure, she was involved in numerous high-profile redevelopment projects, including the Boston Garden and Trinity Place in Copley Square. Having established herself as a reputable manager, she recently struck out on her own, currently developing innovative artist live/work housing in Lowell.

Impressed by the large impact the North End NSC has in the community, quietly out of sight of the many visitors that stream into the neighborhood, Rebecca was inspired to be a part of their efforts to help those in need. Despite a demanding career and young family, she is extraordinarily generous with her time, serving as a special member of the organization’s advisory board. She brings a repertoire of professional skills to the benefit of the agency and they people they serve.  Particularly deft in marketing, she quickly established herself as vital asset to the team, currently leading their fundraising efforts. Thanks to her vision, the NSC recently launched a new development campaign targeting new sources of revenue to off-set dwindling federal resources.

“Rebecca is such a warm and giving person, with a heart of gold,” says Lia Tota, Director of the North End/West End NSC. “Her days are amazingly full yet she still manages to find time for our community. Her boundless energy is an incredible motivator for me and my staff.”
