Introducing Home Forward's New Website

Post Thumb

Dear Colleagues, Partners, and Friends:

I am very pleased to invite you to tour Home Forward's new website ( Conceived as part of our new identity, we have redesigned the site from top to bottom. We wanted a website that was simpler and more intuitive for our visitors to navigate, a site that provided a broader range of information more clearly, and one that reflected our new identity as Home Forward. In short, a website that did a better job serving the different information needs of our residents, stakeholders, and our community.

We've added new sections and expanded others. If you are searching for one of our 6,000 apartments, you now can use the power of Google Maps to find a Home Forward apartment community that meets your needs. If you are a public housing resident or a participant in the Section 8 voucher program, we have created online handbooks that present useful program information in simple, easy-to-understand language.

It's an understatement to say the site was ready for a makeover. Our prior website - the agency's first - had been running for more than ten years, without any improvements since 2003. I think you will agree it was time for a change, and I hope you like the result.

With thanks for your support and best wishes for a happy holiday season,

Steve Rudman
Executive Director
