Florida WAHN

Join Us


The mission of state Women’s Affordable Housing Network (WAHN) chapters is to empower and develop women working in the affordable housing sector through partnership, networking, allyship, advocacy, mentorship, and community engagement. We foster a supportive environment where individuals can bring their authentic selves, enabling the exchange of the brightest ideas.  Driven by our collective goals, WAHN chapters work towards the establishment of a state-wide organization that brings together women from all sectors of the affordable housing industry. By uniting our expertise, passion, and resources, we aim to transform the affordable housing landscape, ensuring equitable access to secure and sustainable housing for all.


To create a community that provides networking and professional development opportunities and promotes the advancement and leadership of women working in the affordable housing industry.

Our Committees

We are excited to announce the formation of several new committees to help us further our mission. Please email us at flwahn@floridawahn.org if you are interested in volunteering for any of the below. In the coming months we will be forming the Communication, Mentorship, and Finance committees – stay tuned for more opportunities soon!

The EVENTS COMMITTEE is responsible for planning and executing events that support our mission and foster collaboration among our members. Past events have ranged from our signature annual event at the Florida Housing Conference to informal happy hours. Our regional representatives help coordinate events throughout the state. We are always looking for new ideas, so let us know what you would like to see!

The MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE is dedicated to growing our community of women working in affordable housing in Florida. We recruit new members, develop networking and volunteer opportunities, and promote the value of membership through professional and personal development activities. We are passionate about empowering women in this field, and we believe that together, we can make a difference.

The SPONSORSHIP COMMITTEE is responsible for securing and managing sponsorships. Committee members work with potential and existing sponsors to answer questions, keep track of responsibilities to those sponsors, and highlight sponsors in our newsletters and on social media.


We would like to thank all of our corporate sponsors for their continued support.
