The following is from the Housing Corporation of Arlington.
Housing Corporation of Arlington is pleased to announce that Pamela Hallett will be joining the organization as its new Executive Director. Hallett comes to the position with over 25 years of affordable housing and community development experience.
Her past experience includes 20 years with her own development/consulting firm which specialized in affordable housing. The firm developed more than 1,500 units of housing, securing more than $100 million in construction and permanent financing. It provided expertise in tax credits, financing, planning, construction monitoring, energy conservation and negotiations.
The projects varied from a six-flat cooperative to a 276-unit SRO development and included transitional housing for domestic violence victims, an AIDS/HIV congregate living facility, elderly housing, new construction for sale housing, and large and small scale multifamily rental rehabilitation. Deals ranged in size from $500,000 to $18 million.
Most recently, Hallett was the Neighborhood Stabilization Program Manager for The Community Builders, Inc. where she managed the $78 million loan program funded by HUD to revitalize and stabilize neighborhoods in nine states and Washington D.C. In addition, Hallett has served on a variety of boards and committees of non-profit organizations over the years, including the Chicago Low Income Housing Trust Fund, DevCorp North, Windy City Habitat for Humanity, Lawyers’ Committee for Better Housing, and the Greater Illinois People’s Cooperative.
Hallett has deep Arlington roots. Her maternal grandparents moved to Arlington from Newton in 1932. And although Hallett grew up in Bedford, her parents returned to Arlington in 1984. Hallett now lives in the Heights.
“On behalf of HCA’s board and staff, we are truly excited to have Pam on board,” said HCA Board President Paul Parravano. “Her energy, enthusiasm and wealth of affordable housing knowledge are exactly what we were looking for in order to move Housing Corporation of Arlington into its next phase of growth. We’re so grateful to HCA Board Member Mark Lesses and his committee members for their diligence, thoughtfulness and many hours of hard work to find our next Executive Director.”
Interested parties can reach Pamela Hallett at 781-316-3429 and firstname.lastname@example.org starting June 4.
Established in 1986, HCA advocates for and provides affordable housing and homelessness prevention services to low-income members of the community. Housing Corporation of Arlington’s Board of Directors, committee members, volunteers and small professional staff work closely with residents, congregations, businesses, tenants and housing professionals in an effort to keep our community diverse and stable.
