Domonique A. Williams
As a Deputy Director within the Department of Neighborhood Development, Domonique will be responsible for managing programs to assist Boston residents facing displacement - whether due to eviction, landlord-tenant disputes, rent escalations, or unplanned loss of housing. In addition, the office will be responsible for collecting data, evaluating for trends, responding accordingly to those in crisis, and advocating for policies at the city and state level.
She will work closely with landlords, management companies, housing authorities, and tenants to negotiate housing solutions, help residents stay housed, and find new affordable opportunities. Domonique will also work to set up and maintain an inventory of services available to Bostonians in housing crisis at external partner agencies and non-profits.
Prior to joining the Office of Housing Stability, Domonique was a legal contractor for a local law firm. She is a proud graduate of Winston-Salem State University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in English and Howard University School of Law, where she won multiple awards for her service in the Fair Housing Clinic.
Domonique currently resides in Roxbury, home to three generations of her family for over seventy years.
