Building a Better Wellesley

Advocating for attainable and affordable housing in Wellesley, Massachusetts

Our Mission

Building a Better Wellesley advocates for attainable and affordable housing. We support housing that creates economic and racial diversity, provides homes for downsizing seniors, maintains family support networks, allows Wellesley’s workforce to be Wellesley residents, enables young families to set down roots, strengthens our retail centers and builds a more sustainable environment. Building a Better Wellesley is committed to providing housing information and learning opportunities for the community. We strive to be a positive voice for thoughtful housing development.
