Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to information the community we serve effectively and focus on service to the youth in our programs.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

- Modify our current website using WordPress by making all areas editable for staff to easily make changes as programs evolve.
- Add areas on the website for families and youth to easily complete forms by.
- Change the background look of our website.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have approved images, content for forms, an active WordPress site, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the forms constructed for the website., and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We currently use a volunteer that assist us with minor updates that we have. She is familiar with WordPress but not how our current WordPress site is set up. Also, since she volunteers, updates aren't always completed in a timely fashion.

The completion of this project will empower our staff to update their own areas accordingly.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
