Alejandra Garcia Narvaez, Program Manager with Best Buddies Capital Region

Congratulations to Walter Webdale:

Walter Webdale was presented with the President’s Choice Award, which honors an individual’s lifetime achievements in the affordable housing industry, at the Housing Association of Nonprofit Developer (HAND) Annual Meeting. Walter has been in the affordable housing business for more than 50 years, including 40 years in Northern Virginia.
For 25 years, he served as Director of the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development. He became President and CEO of AHC in 1999. Under his leadership, AHC has more than quadrupled its multifamily housing portfolio. AHC’s largest number of properties continues to be in Arlington, where AHC is based, but the organization has also expanded to other nearby Virginia communities, including Fairfax County and Alexandria, and to Montgomery County and Baltimore in Maryland. O
ther milestones during his tenure include recognizing the housing needs in Baltimore and opening an AHC office there, establishing AHC’s own property management company, and more than doubling AHC’s Resident Services community outreach program.
