Welcome
To Salem Housing Authority

Dear Residents of Salem Housing Authority,
I wanted to take an opportunity to introduce myself as the new Executive Director for the Salem Housing Authority.

I began working in Salem the first week of September and it’s been a whirlwind of exciting introductions and positive interactions with many folks from our communities. My office is located at 27 Charter Street in downtown Salem, if you’re in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by and say hello or if you’d like to reach out by phone, I can be contacted at 978-744-4431. You can also reach me by email at choog@salemha.org. I will be hosting meet and greets in the weeks to come at various sites around Salem, be on the look out for flyers advertising those dates/times.

I’m really looking forward to the exciting potential of our future work in Salem. I hope to meet many of you in the coming months and/or hear from you in some form. Salem is such a dynamic City with celebrated diversity and rich history. The success in this City under the leadership of Mayor Driscoll is impressive and exciting. Her commitment to growth and strong leadership is something I personally value and will strive to mirror in our partnership with the City of Salem. It is my great pleasure to be a part of the team here at the Salem Housing Authority as well as a contributing team member in the great City of Salem.

I look forward to eventually meeting you all.

Warm Regards,
Cathy Hoog
Executive Director
