WHA Executive Director Message:

June 1, 2022

Dear Residents,

First, I would like to thank you for your continued support and patience these last six months as I transitioned from Deputy Director to the Executive Director of the Wellesley Housing Authority. Secondly, I am pleased to introduce MeLinda Williams and Haley Pimenta, who have joined the Wellesley Housing Authority Administrative staff! Though I will continue to be available for you, most of my previous duties will fall under MeLinda and Haley. And remember, if you are unsure who to speak with, just ask; we are all more than willing to assist. So, please join me in welcoming MeLinda and Haley to the WHA community!

Below are some details of their specific responsibilities.
• MeLinda Williams holds the position of Public Housing Coordinator to assist in the professional administration of all properties. MeLinda will become the point person for all residents as you seek day-to-day assistance from the administrative office. Some of her primary responsibilities will include recertifications, interim rent calculations, pest control, and general lease enforcement.
• Haley Pimenta holds the position of Occupancy Specialist to maintain all components of DHCD’s CHAMP waitlist system. Haley will be the point person for all applicants for assistance with waitlist inquiries and application assistance. However, she will also be available to assist residents with documents for recertification, etc.
