Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to provide more services to homeowner clients in need of critical repairs.

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

Rebuilding Together Twin Cities (RTTC) is currently working on a website audit with a Catchafire professional. We will be using a site map as the next step in the process. It has been suggested a website construction project be posted to allow both audit and construction professional to connect/have transition between projects.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have been working on a website audit, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a web "site map", knowledgeable staff members, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Rebuilding Together Twin Cities is one of approximately 140 Rebuilding Together affiliates across the country. Our work is to provide critical home repairs for low income homeowners to insure that these individuals are able to live independently in safe healthy homes and remain in their communities.

Rebuilding Together Twin Cities website should serve a number of clients: individuals seeking information, homeowners applying for services, donors, and volunteers giving time.
