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 are in the middle of a re-branding process and are in need of a new website. We have purchased our new domain name, but we need a skilled professional who can update our existing WordPress website to meet our needs for our new brand.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a new domain name and an existing WordPress site, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have webhost options, and staff who know basic WordPress, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to allocate those admin dollars to support direct services, including providing treatment at no cost to uninsured and low-income individuals.

We are re-branding and will begin doing business as our new name in Spring 2020. We need a new website to market our new brand that is simple to maintain and easy for clients to navigate. Our current site requires too much CSS coding knowledge to be easily altered on the back end by our staff, and currently has some coding errors. We also need assistance with SEO during the transition phase.
