We’re delighted to share some exciting news: SAMHSA’s HRC website has been honored with two awards! The Web Marketing Association awarded an “Industry Standard of Excellence” award in the government category for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development. HRC also won a 2010 New Media “Standard of Excellence Award” in the government category.

The New Media Awards are known for recognizing outstanding uses of new media in communications. The Web Marketing Association’s WebAward Competition is the premier website award program available today.

From the start, SAMHSA’s Homelessness Resource Center has worked hard to be innovative. We wanted to find new ways to reach out to providers working in homeless services. We wanted to use the power of the Internet, electronic communication, and social networking to share evidence based and promising practices with providers. Launched in 2008, the HRC website was the result.

We’ve heard from HRC community members and providers across the country that the HRC website helps them learn, connect, and share resources. This feedback helps us to improve the website to give providers what they need to do their jobs. We’re gratified to know that those outside of the field are now also recognizing our work.
