Michel Denis has been appointed liaison to the Haitian community in the Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS). He will serve as the primary contact for constituents and businesses looking to connect with the Mayor’s Office and will facilitate the delivery of services in collaboration with city departments.

Michel Denis was born in Bel-Air, a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He migrated to the US as a teenager and went on to earn an associate degree in Fine Arts at Bunker Hill Community College and a bachelors in Political Science at Lesley University. He currently serves as the Director of a non-profit organization called ITIAHaiti, whose mission is to revive Haitian culture while coaching youth to build their leadership through arts.

“I am thrilled to work for Mayor Michelle Wu’s administration as the liaison to the Haitian community,” Denis said. “I am committed to serving my community and connecting them to the services and resources the City of Boston has to offer.”

Denis is an avid reader, writer, and poet. He enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends.

The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS) encourages, facilitates and maximizes citizen input and participation through service requests, neighborhood meetings, mailings, and emergency responses. To report non-emergency issues to the City, residents are encouraged to connect with BOS:311 by dialing 3-1-1 or by downloading the free BOS:311 app on iOS or Android platforms.
