Shalini Tendulkar

President, Newton Neighbors

A pillar of compassion and kindness in our community, Tendulkar’s leadership was instrumental in creating a connection between valuable aid and resources and those who needed it the most. In the early days of the pandemic, Tendulkar, along with three co-founders, launched Newton Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a mutual aid network Facebook group, that would later join efforts with Welcoming Newton to form the nonprofit, Newton Neighbors, Inc. Tendulkar’s values of service and collaboration her parents instilled in her along with her own beliefs that access to food, housing, and health are fundamental human rights, motivate her in her role as president of Newton Neighbors. Tendulkar is also a senior lecturer in the department of community health at Tufts University.
