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.
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, community development and financial services industries throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
WHF-PA provides 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, community development and finance throughout Pennsylvania. Members include professionals in architecture, banking, law, development, construction, insurance, title, investment banking, municipal finance, historic preservation, property management, supportive services, social services and more. We come from the private sector, state, local, and federal agencies, non- profit organizations and community groups.
In addition to providing useful content on its website, WHF-PA connects members. Most recently, WHF-PA members have gathered for monthly WHF-PA Wednesdays (informal virtual networking to enable members to learn more about each other and share industry knowledge) and happy hours via Zoom. WHF-PA also holds an annual membership event (generally timed to coincide with the Homes Within Reach Conference) and provides opportunities to tour developments and gather in person throughout the Commonwealth.
