Joselyn Wilkinson

Statewide Capacity Building Director, Arizona Housing Coalition

Joselyn has lived a life devoted to the cause of housing and homelessness. Fueled by her own struggles with housing insecurity, domestic violence, and homelessness, Joselyn has spoken and worked with leaders locally and nationally to bring awareness and workable solutions that serve those that are most severely and directly impacted in our society. As the statewide capacity building director for the Arizona Housing Coalition, she is overseeing the multi-million-dollar effort to distribute funding and increase capacity to housing and homeless service providers across the state of Arizona. Her work is vast, she has sat on the frontlines of the work of housing and homelessness and now is championing her work around racial equity and housing stability for the state. She currently sits on the Governor's Inter Agency Community Council on Housing and Homelessness, where she oversees the collaborative of stakeholders charged with creating strategies to effectively increase efforts pertaining to outreach. As a passionate leader, she brings strategic and innovative thinking and planning to the table from a lens of lived experience. Joselyn is a 2023 alum of the Arizona Leading for Change Fellowship, a fellowship dedicated to social and economic justice for Arizona. During her time with LFC, she built legislation for rent stabilization for senior citizens. Elected by her class to be class speaker, she had the opportunity to speak alongside Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs, who is also an alum of this fellowship. With all of these accolades, the titles that she holds most sacred are that of sister, daughter, mother, and grandmother. They are the light that shines brightest as she fights to end homelessness and create systems that serve the people instead of serving people up.
