A Winning Website for NWHP
NeighborWorks Home Partners is excited to announce that we were the recipient of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits Dot.Org Award for Website Redesign in the Large Organization Category. The award recognizes nonprofits who are using technology and communications in inspiring, effective and creative ways.
From the award presentation:
“NeighborWorks Home Partners’ website redesign aligns with the organization’s mission to revitalize neighborhoods by creating and supporting successful homeownership. With the help of consultants, peers, community members and customers, NeighborWorks identified areas of waste and areas for growth in their organization and determined strengths and opportunities for better serving the community. Those findings were incorporated into the list of needs for the new website. Many technology tools have been added to the site, like the ability for customers to create user accounts and upload documents to their records prior to coming to the offices for appointments. Housing counselors are able to verify documents in advance of the appointment and reschedule if needed. They have also integrated more forms into the website to provide easier interfacing with job applicants, allow customers to pay fees online, and receive information from loan customers who are requesting data. All of these functions have multiple benefits: streamlining the sharing of information in a uniform manner, freeing staff time that had previously been spent on data entry, and providing a better experience and more timely service for NeighborWorks’ customers.”
The internal website redesign was headed by our Marketing and Communications Coordinator, Amanda Welliver, with support from Beth Hyser, Kjirsten Johnson, and Jason Peterson. The team engaged Cary Walksi of Copilot for website design.
