We build a stronger community through housing opportunities and resource networks, enhancing the quality of life.

While the Wallingford Housing Authority strives to build and maintain a community of safe, clean and affordable apartments, our mission extends beyond housing to the wellbeing, enrichment, and empowerment of each family that lives here. We work to ensure all of our residents have access to the resources and support they need. Not only to live, but to thrive, as members of the Wallingford community.
