Website Construction (CMS-Based)

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

We're finalizing our interviews with a UX designer and understand it would be helpful for you to work in conjunction with her. This will be a full website redesign to make the website move people to help improve the lives of children in the foster care system.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have A UX designer, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff member, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to serve more children and families. We're here to make a lasting difference and need your help!

We were rejected by google ad grants because of our website. Our programs are highly effective in preventing abuse and empowering families; we just need your help to get the word out and attract resources!
