Jeanne Faulconer is Chair of the Board of Family and Home Network, and she writes a personal blog - I thought many FAHN members and website visitors would especially enjoy her latest post: Under One Roof.

A start on our new "Resources" section (more to come soon!).

Now it's time to let people know about the new website, and then I'll focus on adding content. Let me know what you'd like to see here.... Use that handy "Feedback" tab on the left side of the webpage.

Working out the bugs

on May 6th, 2010 at 4:52:13 PM

I'm getting great support from the Drupal Gardens team. I've identified some bugs on our site (problems with posting "replies" in the Forums) and they're working to fix that. Hope visitors to the site enjoy looking around and helping us test it.

More content...

on May 2nd, 2010 at 10:20:42 PM

We're adding new content, mining back issues of Welcome Home (the journal published by the organization from 1984-2004). If you are the author of an article or poem, or the contributor of art work, please let us know so we have your current contact informaion! Email:

And if you have a favorite from the pages of Welcome Home that you'd like to see posted on our website, let us know about that too. We'll do our best to contact the author and get permission to post it.

There is a lot yet to be done...
