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, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

Homestretch has had a website audit that provided us with the prototype for a new site. We now need someone to help us develop the new website and provide training to operate the site

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have all information from the website audit, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have contact information for volunteer from the website audit, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to use money on the programs for the homeless families we serve. This is a crucial savings during the virus. During this difficult time our families are requiring extra support.

Our current website is outdated and not very engaging for first time visitors. We want to draw people to the site and keep them reading about our program and hopefully become donors and volunteers.

Project Plan

Prep: Share Information
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with an outline of the Organization’s needs and goals for the new website, which should include any specific features that are required (e.g., contact forms, mobile responsive design, member sign in, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager provides approved content and images to be used for the new website (e.g., About Us copy, Mission Statement, staff bios and images, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with links to any existing online presence that the Organization has (e.g., social media, blog, existing website, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager registers Organization's domain name with a web host, if necessary
Milestone 1: Kick-off Discussion
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional connect to discuss the timeline and scope of the website project, including: the number of pages or sections for the new website, specific features and plugins requires, look and feel for the website (themes), target date for initial review, target date for website launch
  • Professional reviews information provided and makes recommendations for which CMS application to use
  • Volunteer Manager signs up for the selected CMS application, and provides Professional with credentials to create the website
Milestone 2: Build & Review
  • Professional uses the materials provided and agreed upon timeline to build the website
  • Volunteer Manager reviews the in-progress website and provides feedback
  • Professional completes any required functional QA
Milestone 3: Website Launch
  • Professional provides final website for approval to launch
  • Volunteer Manager approves the website for launch, or requests approval from any stakeholders

Our Mission

Homestretch empowers homeless parents with children to secure permanent housing and attain the skills, knowledge and hope they need to achieve self-sufficiency. We make a long-term investment in our clients through a two-year comprehensive, individualized program that helps them move from crisis to long-term stability and financial independence. These parents work hard to improve their lives and build a future for their children. They exit the program with a job, an affordable home, no debt, and savings in the bank.
