Annual Report

Senior Staff

Linda Shaw
Executive Director
This being my ninth year as Executive Director, I want to say thank you to all who support and acknowledge that the Revere Housing Authority (RHA) is one of the leading and innovative housing agencies in the Commonwealth. With the help of our partners, staff and administrative team, and under the guidance of RHA’s Board of Commissioners, affordable housing has become a reality for several thousand individuals who normally would not have had a place to stay or a place to call home.
Karen Connery
Deputy Director for Operations
As Deputy Director for Operations with over 21 years of working at the RHA, I am proud to be a part of an organization that includes a Board and Executive Director who are highly motivated, dedicated and driven to maintaining the RHA as a top performer. The Board, Executive Director and staff are ensuring the integrity of the daily operation of the RHA with a commitment to excellence in performance. Our organization has successfully met the goals of the mission statement and operated effectively and in a professional manner by following the policies, procedures, rules, regulations, guidelines and laws.
Tricia Duffy
Accounts Manager
As Accounts Manager, with over twenty of years of working at the RHA, I work closely with department leaders to implement practices that are best for the RHA and the residents. Best practices and initiatives can reduce costs and enable more time to be spent on assessment of finances, personnel and tenant issues, and allow staff to function on a higher level.
Evelyn Muasya
Acting Director of Housing Management
As the Acting Director for Housing Management, Evelyn Muasya, manages the Federal, State, and Section 8 New Construction public housing portfolio. The portfolio contains 900 units. The Housing Management Department’s goal is to work with our families and their representatives in order provide a clean and safe environment for residents. Housing Management duties include lease enforcement, annual certifications, procurement, Davis-Bacon wage enforcement reporting, Energy and Performance Information Center reporting, Public and Indian Housing reporting, maintaining both the Enterprise Income Verification standards and the Capital Improvements Management System.
Karlene Maiolino
Section 8 Manager
As the Section 8 Manager, I handle the housing Assistance Payments to Landlord and Housing Authorities. I also handle the Voucher Management Systems. In addition to acceptance of applicants to the HVCP, I conduct briefings and terminations of vouchers.
The Revere Housing Authority Section 8 Department’s main goal is to provide rental assistance programs that benefit our community. The Tenant-Based Housing Choice Voucher program allows low-income families to live in privately owned home of their choice by subsiding a portion of their rent. This program gives families the flexibility to choose their own apartment in their desired neighborhood at an affordable cost. HCV Participants are responsible for finding an apartment that accepts the Housing Choice vouchers in the private market. The Housing Choice Voucher Program has recently begun participating in www.gosection8.com. This is great resource that not only benefits the Housing Choice Voucher Participants but the new and current Landlord(s) as well. Landlord(s) can list their apartments easily and efficiently. The HCV Participants can easily look for available units. The Section 8/ Leased Housing Department is consistently looking for new and innovative ways to help our clientele. Another way we have been able to achieve this goal was to procure a new inspection company; McCright & Associates Inspection company. Another noteworthy mentionable is that the Section 8 Department is consistently considered high performer from HUD.
Peter Romano
Director of Maintenance
RHA’s Maintenance Department has been working diligently on numerous modernization projects as well as daily repairs, vacant unit turnovers, and preventative measures to ensure a safe and secure living environment for RHA tenants. Staff has successfully met Mother Nature’s demand over the past year with its quick response to cleaning and repairing damage after the rare occurrence of a tornado and maintained a high task condition and standard during the winter’s snow inundation. RHA has also maintained its status as a high performer as a result of the hard work put into our state and federal unit/site inspections.

Dacia Keane

As the Administrative Assistant for Revere Housing Authority, I am the first point of contact for all clients such as tenants and applicants; my main objective is to provide information. Most applicants are seeking information or resources that will help them in their housing search. Since there is a waiting list for public housing, any help in the form of services or resources that could possibly assist an applicant is important information to pass along. I am responsible for assisting and directing phone calls by collecting information and answering their housing questions. I act as a liaison between clients and the Tenant Selection/Housing Management Departments. I assist the finance department by coding and entering bills, and generating checks. I am responsible for making sure all bills are paid on time and filed in a timely manner.

It has been a pleasure to provide services/ supports to this community and to get to know tenants through home visits, meeting tenants at their weekly hair cut or foot doctor appointments in their buildings, or waiting for the weekly bus to grocery shop. Alyssa has been able to reestablish a relationship with Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department to provide seniors with the Senior Identification Program and hopes to expand programs with the Department by instituting the Children’s Fingerprinting Program (stay tuned!). She has also initiated a partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank, forging the way for the Brown Bag Program that provides a bag of groceries each month for primarily seniors and some families. RHA families also participated in the first annual Playground Safety Essay and Poster contested hosted by the HAI Group and is proud to share that RHA families who participated placed third in all three categories with a prize of Walmart gift cards.
