Welcome, Pam!

HCA is pleased to announce that Pamela Hallett will be joining the organization as its new Executive Director. Pam 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. 

Most recently, Pam 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 the District of Columbia.  In addition, Pam 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. 

Pam has deep Arlington roots.  Her maternal grandparents moved to Arlington from Newton in 1932.  And although Pam grew up in Bedford, her parents returned to Arlington in 1984. Pam 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.”
