The Wallingford Housing Authority (WHA) strives to build a stronger community through housing opportunities and resource networks, enhancing our residents’ quality of life. It’s our goal to maintain a community of safe, clean, and affordable apartments while enriching the lives of each family.

We are guided by the belief that access to safe, affordable housing is a human right.
