Erika Sidor
At Creative Hub Worcester are 40 Under Forty winners (from left) Andrew B. Palumbo, Courtney Ross Escobar, Meghan E. Montaner and Patrick J. DiGregorio.

DiGregorio started serving area veterans and their families nine years ago, first as residential advisor at the nonprofit's headquarters on Grove Street, helping the men who live there with day-to-day activities. He has moved through the ranks in almost every aspect of the agency to now managing staff in four different grant programs.

He has chaired the Veterans subcommittee of The Continuum of Care for the last two years, focusing on identifying veteran homeless in Worcester County and getting them into permanent housing, as one of his passions is helping the homeless.

What do you daydream about? Owning my own business

Why do you work in Central Mass.? I believe in the area. It's a diverse community, and I'm happy to be part of it. We are an hour away from bigger cities, the beach and the mountains.

What actor would play you in a movie? Seth Rogan. He is funny, outgoing and dedicated to helping people in need.
