Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to utilize the funding from our limited amount of grants to hire and train new staff, put into place the required scheduling software technology, and for new office setup costs.

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

New website for a community program that is informational and that can be easily maintained/altered by program staff. Our new program will allow seniors and individuals with disabilities to obtain their transportation needs through the use of a single telephone number.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have program name, physical address, telephone number, progam log, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have many photos and a great deal of background information, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Website will play a huge part in the marketing of the One-Call Transportation Center by allowing easy public access so they can learn about this new community initiative and how they may now easily access transportation providers for their needs. Marketing is a major component in the success of our new program which requires an accurate, informative, and attention grabbing website as the cornerstone of our marketing plan.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
