The mission of Women in Housing and Finance of Pennsylvania (WHF-PA) shall be to promote and support the professional growth of women in housing, finance, and development, particularly in the areas of affordable housing and community development, by providing various forums and networking opportunities through which members connect and share knowledge and experience.
Women in Housing and Finance of Pennsylvania (WHF-PA) is a membership organization, which strives to be a networking resource for women in the housing and financial services industry with a specific focus in community development throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
WHF-PA will provide relevant industry news, networking opportunities and professional development for its members. WHF-PA’s members are a diverse group of accomplished individuals drawn from all aspects of housing and finance throughout Pennsylvania. Members include professionals in architecture, banking, law, development, construction, insurance, title, investment banking, municipal finance, historic preservation, and more. We come from the private sector, from state, local, and federal agencies, from non- profit organizations and community groups.
WHF-PA connects members from Pennsylvania with the New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut Women and Housing Finance organizations. WHF-PA plans to offer periodic workshops and seminars featuring speakers and panelists who are experts in affordable housing and finance. We will sponsor events that allow members to network in informal social settings. These include a spring/summer gathering to greet new members, a membership event at the Homes Within Reach Conference, as well as opportunities to tour new and exciting developments.
