Office of Housing Stability Head named

East Boston’s Lydia Edwards was appointed head of the Office of Housing Stability by Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, according to a City of Boston press release. The office, under the Department of Neighborhood Development, was announced in his State of the City speech earlier this year and is designed to help keep people in their homes.

According to what’s been released, the office will help mediate landlord-tenant disputes, try to assist residents displaced for any reason and track eviction data.

On her Facebook page, Edwards said “I know that together we can tackle displacement and create a stable city for all residents. We can do this together by valuing all perspectives and creating policy and solutions for tenants and landlords.”
