Introducing Our New Website

We've launched a brand new website that has been redesigned from top to bottom.  The site features new functionality and a simple, intuitive design that will make it easier for a range of visitors to find the information they need about us and our programs.

Key features include:

  • The ability to browse and search for Home Forward's 72 apartment communities using a range of criteria and the power of Google Maps.
  • Online handbooks for Section 8 participants and public housing residents that provide a breadth of useful program information that is easy to access and understand.
  • A new section devoted to landlords who participate in the Section 8 rent assistance program.
  • Prominently placed agency overview information in the seven languages used most frequently by Home Forward residents who don't speak English.
  • The ability to increase font size on every page.
  • Drop down menus, bread crumb trails, and other modern website features that make navigation easier.

The site was developed on a content management system, which gives staff without computer programming skills the ability to update information easily and quickly.  Its look and feel reflects the agency's new identity, adopted with its new name, Home Forward, in May 2011.

Home Forward's previous website, the agency's first, was launched more than a decade ago, and its last functional update was in 2003.
