A lifelong Boston resident originally from the Grove Hall neighborhood, Dariela Villón-Maga has been an active leader in her community for most of her life. Her passion for affordable housing is rooted in her lived experience: facing homelessness and growing up in affordable housing throughout the city, Dariela gained a deep understanding of how housing stability can be the foundation for prosperity, just as it was for her. In 2021, she took a leap of faith and launched DVM Consulting (now DVM Housing Partners)—a one-of-a-kind 100% M/WBE affordable housing firm that centers community voice and vision.
Dariela resides in the Mattapan neighborhood of Boston with her partner, Courtney Villón-Maga, and two pets: Tumi and Mila. In her free time, she loves to travel and experience different cultures around the world.
