Michael D. Allard is the Chief Operating Officer for Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program. As one of the founding members of the organization, Michael’s expertise, vision, and drive has helped Home Base grow from a small regional outpatient clinic to a National Center of Excellence dedicated to healing the invisible wounds of war through world-class clinical care, wellness, education, and research. Michael’s enduring gratitude for the sacrifices made by our nation’s service members – including those of his family, past and present – will always be the spirit behind his work.
Through partnership development with corporations and nonprofits, Michael has positioned Home Base to be an international leader in military mental health care, establishing notable distinctions and partnerships with Wounded Warrior Project’s Warrior Care Network and President George W. Bush’s Warrior Wellness Alliance. In 2017, Home Base was named the U.S. charitable partner to The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry’s Heads Together Campaign.
The son of a minister and a nurse, Michael’s commitment to helping underserved populations was instilled in him at a young age. His work has impacted thousands of veterans and families, and homeless and patient communities achieve a better, healthy and productive life. Before joining Home Base, Michael served as Senior Director of Development for Massachusetts General Hospital, Chief of Staff for Partners HealthCare Development, Chief of Operations and Government Liaison for the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance (MHSA), legislative aide to State Senator David Magnani and reengineering coordinator for Prudential Insurance.
Michael graduated from Northeastern University with a bachelor’s degree in political science. He resides in Newburyport, Massachusetts with his wife and four children.
