Underwood is no stranger to the organization. He served on ABC's Board of Directors from 2007 to 2015. Underwood revealed what he hopes to accomplish in this new role.

"My intent is to build on what has been built, my intent is to be fearless and as a person of color to put it quite simply, we work for the poor-period," says Underwood.

Action for a Better Community provides services to people in Monroe and Ontario County, helping them become more self-sufficient.
