Our Mission

The Mission of Women in Homeland Security is to provide a professional organization for women working in the field of homeland security. As a relatively new field, the organization strives to provide women with a forum to learn about the many facets of the discipline and to build the connections necessary for their own professional development and to understand the full spectrum of homeland security.

Charitable Work

As part of Women in Homeland Security’s mission to build the homeland security community, our organization annually selects a charity in the homeland security community. Women in Homeland Security supports charitable organizations that seek to reduce, eradicate, or lessen the threat of future terrorism and/or support our domestic forces fighting against terrorism. We support these causes through two main events: an annual BBQ Cook-Off and our annual Spirit of Giving Charity Auction. To date, WHS has raised over $140,000 for charities in homeland including the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the ICE Foundation, the Border Patrol Foundation, the Fairfax County International Search & Rescue, the Coast Guard Enlisted Memorial Foundation, and the No Greater Sacrifice Foundation.

Few of our charity partners:
  • FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION AGENTS ASSOCIATION
  • NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS MEMORIAL
