Board of Commissioners

Mission Statement

The Wellesley Housing Authority (WHA) mission is to provide clean, safe, and well-maintained affordable housing for low-income elderly, disabled adults, and families to live and raise their families while respecting their privacy rights.  WHA is committed to fair and non-discriminatory practices throughout all of its housing programs and activities.

Wellesley Housing Authority Board

Local Housing Authorities are run by a Board of Commissioners made up of residents of the community in which they are located. A Local Housing Authority is the principal housing advocate within its community, charged with planning and implementing a balanced housing program. In addition to planning, advocacy, and determining the needs of the low-income population, the board has the responsibility for placing the agency’s operations in the context of policy.

All the laws, regulations, and local requirements that impact the operations, residents, and staff of a local housing authority are placed within the policy framework by its Board of Commissioners.

The WHA Board of Commissioners consists of five (5) members, four (4) of whom are elected through the town electoral process, and one (1) who is appointed by the Governor of Massachusetts.
