Project Details

What We Need
  • Set up of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: We recommend that you do a Website Content Plan project first, so that you have all the content ready for your new CMS-based site. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily - no coding required!
Additional Details

CAFY has a functioning website done by a professional but we want to make it a lot more simple and user friendly. We have a skeleton of exactly what we want, we just need someone to implement it in Wordpress.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have A skeleton of the entire new website we would like, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have A staff member that can fully dedicate her time to this, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to Keep our funds in our emergency placement efforts for victims who need to leave their homes immediately due to safety.

We have a professionally done website but we have gotten feedback that it is not as user friendly as it should be. People who visit our site may be people in crisis and need information quickly, as we are a victim services agency. This would help us effectively serve our clients and the community at large.
