Abstract

For this project, we designed and implemented a set of web-based communication solutions for the REACH Program, a non-profit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts. Staff works with the families of children, aged birth through age three, to support early childhood development. Previously, the program used a website to communicate with enrolled families, but the website was not easy to use or maintain for staff members. We created a new website based on the Acquia Drupal content management system, and created pages on the social networking sites Facebook and Twitter. We provided the program a list of recommendations for website and social networking implementation and maintenance, and suggestions for future work, including database management and content development.
