1. A little background experience working with nonprofit websites will be a plus because we don't want it to feel like a corporate site.
2. We're hoping to optimize our site to be bilingual (Spanish and English) and it would be great to learn more about how that would work and whether or not it can be done during this project!
Our nonprofit organization is currently going through a visual rebrand and we're hoping to launch our new look as soon as our new website is built! We are a 45 year old organization with a website that runs on Drupal, and looking to migrate to Wordpress (open to discussion on this migration).
We have all the language, images, and want to maintain some aspects of our old site but really looking to minimize the content and have an easy-to-use new interface for both our public audience and our backend users (staff).
UHAB empowers low- to moderate-income residents to take control of their housing and enhance communities by creating strong tenant associations and lasting affordable co-ops.
Since its founding in 1973, UHAB has helped form dozens of tenant associations and has guided some 1,600 buildings from distressed rental to affordable housing cooperative, enabling low- to moderate-income residents of more than 30,000 apartments to become co-op homeowners.
Over the years, we have developed an intimate knowledge of New York City’s low-income co-op community. We are experts in meeting the needs of that community. Our work is unmatched by any other organization in its field.
UHAB educates residents of troubled rental buildings on defending their rights and determining whether or not co-op homeownership might be a viable path for them. We hold Introduction to Limited-Equity Co-ops classes for people interested in purchasing units in UHAB’s network of affordable co-ops. And we train residents on the management, maintenance, and financial sustainability of their buildings as well as on protecting affordability and promoting community spirit.
