HA499 Capstone Project Facility Websites
These sites have the comprehensive data needed for all of your HA499 projects. The criteria included the
Home page with ‘About Us’ containing demographic and statistical information about locations, services,
community outreach, etc. The site would have a readily accessible Strategic Plan (some required a
keyword search) and Annual Report (some required some investigation, which is why I copied the direct
link). These sites were well designed, had pertinent information available in an organized manner. Most
sites required some searching, but had the Strategic Plan, Mission Statement (Vision), and Annual Report
