Our Mission

WoMen in Relocation provides a forum for all relocation professionals to network, strategic and develop public awareness campaigns to support individuals in small communities in need of housing assistance. This collaborative group was founded with the hope of building and encouraging relationships to support our nation’s housing needs – one small community at a time.  To be a member-in-good-standing all we ask is that you donate to the group we choose to support each year.
