What did Family House need?

Craig helped Family House * User interface design for the development of a new website * Improvement to the user experience on its website

Why is this project important?

Our Google Analytics indicates an increasing number of mobile users - we're hovering around 50% right now, and want visitors to have the best experience possible, so they'll stay on our site and engage with the cause (through volunteering, donating, or evangelizing).

This project will save us $11,946, allowing us to give free housing to over 90 families whose child is undergoing treatment for cancer or another life-threatening illness.

I also have experience programming with:

• Google App Engine
• PHP
