Affordable Housing


Randolph Programs

Randolph Housing Authority

The Randolph Housing Authority was established in 1965 in order to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing opportunities for the elderly and disabled residents of Randolph. We strive to embrace high standards of ethics, management, accountability, and respect. We remain committed to this mission today. The RHA administers 236 State one bedroom units of Elderly(60+) and Disabled housing and participates in the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program. 

The properties managed by the RHA are located on Elderly Drive, Sunshine Drive and Decelle Drive.

Shared Housing Services Organization

The SHSO augments staff capacity by providing the expertise and staffing needed to manage and monitor the affordable housing track on a continual basis.  More information is coming soon.  Contact Nicole Lambert for additional information and support.
