Ascentria has come a long way since Bovill joined the formerly named Lutheran Social Services nonprofit more than a decade ago, including the last six as its leader. Ascentria has changed its name, streamlined operations and created new programs and partnerships throughout New England. Its latest successes under Bovill were the January acquisition of the Presentation Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center in Brighton with a $23-million state government grant in January, and then being selected among 13 nationwide to receive special consulting from the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. Ascentria focuses on helping refugees, the disabled, seniors, those with mental health challenges, and others who sometimes need extra help in staying healthy.
