                                Specification/Design Document



1 Purpose of Document
   This document defines the requirements and design of the web site baseline “habitat 2”

1.1 Scope of Document
   This document defines the web site in its entirety. The document is started after the phase I
proposal is approved by the customer and is completed prior to web site software coding. As this
document is developed, the “Test Plan/Description/Report Document” is also developed. This
document is done when the customer approves the document following the “Critical Design
Review”.


1.2 Required Documents
   a. Habitat Style Guide
      (http://www.google.com/search?hl=&q=habitat+for+humanity+web+style+guidelines&s
      ourceid=navclient-ff&rlz=1B6_____enUS356US356&ie=UTF-8 )


1.3 Support Documents
   a.   Web ReDesign 2.0 by Kelly Goto & Emily Cotler (Recommended text book)
   b.   Web Site Evaluation Document (If upgrading a web site)
   c.   Proposal Phase I - Web Site Definition Report
   d.   Test Plan/Description Document (Template)

1.4 Support Reports
   Reports are generated in parallel with this document and provided to the customer to insure
understanding. Customers are expected to review the report and return with comment.
Dialogue associated with these reports is designed to minimize rework of documents presented at
the design review. The reports include:
    a. Visitor Profile – Profiles the targeted web site visitors
    b. Content Maintenance Report – Procedures for keeping web site current
    c. Style Guide – Defines overall web site appearance
    d. Viewing Equipment Matrix Report – List of customer web serf equipment

1.5 Document Development Instructions
   a. This document starts out as the Specification/Design Document template. Most template
      content is required to build all web sites. Instructions are identified with brackets as such
      {instructions} that provide guidance in completing this document. Remove the
      instructions from the document as the instructions are executed.

   b. Section “2 Business Description” has already been completed in the “Project Proposal
      Phase I – Definition” document. Use copy and past to move the information from one
      document to the other.



                                                                                                  8
                             Specification/Design Document


c. Section “2.9 Web Site Visitor Profile” is critical information in completing this
   document. The customer provided this information when the “Project Proposal Phase I –
   Definition” document was prepared. If there is any drought about the accuracy of this
   information, make changes and provide this information back to the customer using a
   “Visitor Profile Report”. Use the same information format for this document and the
   report.

d. Section “7 Web Site Content Maintenance” addresses how often and how much
   information will change on the web site. It is important to identify this information early
   in preparing this document. It will impact the web site design. When section 7 is
   completed, product a “Content Maintenance Report” and have the customer review and
   approve this section prior to document approval at the “Design Reviw”.

e. Section “4.8 Creating a Design Style Guide” captures web style information to maintain
   presentation consistency throughout the web site life cycle. The style guide is produced
   in parallel with this document and reviewed and approved by the customer prior to
   completion of this document. Prototype web pages are developed to help the customer
   and developer define the web style. The web development team in Phase II will use the
   document. Web site maintainers will also use the document.

f. Section “6.4 Visitor Viewing Equipment Requirements” identifies the equipment this

2.3 Business History
In February of 2000, Habitat for Humanity of the Indian Wells Valley (HFHIWV) was chartered
as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation in the State of California. In May of the
same year HFHIWV was officially approved as an Affiliate of Habitat for Humanity,
International (HFHI). In 2001 the first partner family moved into a rehabilitated house. Since
then, 15 houses have been completed, a 16th started and a “House in a Box” was framed and sent
to the Mobile, Alabama Affiliate to aid in Hurricane Katrina recovery. HFHIWV continues to
raise awareness of inadequate and substandard housing in the Indian Wells Valley, and funds to
build houses with low income families in need of decent affordable housing.

2.4 Business Mission Statement
   HFHIWV partners with God and people of the Indian Wells Valley to advocate for descent
housing for all. While recognizing that we cannot meet every need, HFHIWV provides
opportunities for partnership to build decent housing and communities so that all can see God‟s
love in action and allow all to live and grow into all that God intends.”


2.5 Business Support Documents
   The web master or their equivalent needs the following documents:
   a. Brochures
   b. Annual reports

2.6 Competitive Position
   Since this organization is a 501(c)(3) Not For Profit Corporation dedicated to moving families
away from poverty, business competition is not an issue. However, with Habitat for Humanity,
US being the leading builder in houses for low to middle income families, it is the responsibility
of Habitat and its affiliates to provide leadership in advocacy, developing increased awareness of
need and forming partnerships to achieve the vision of no sub-standard housing.

2.10 Web Site Business Requirements
    Partner families are not financially capable of being part of the competitive housing market.
However, the corporation is in competition for other humanitarian resources. To compete for
these limited resources, Habitat must convince donors their dollars will provide the most benefit
to society.

2.11 Customer In House Web Expertise
Habitat for Humanity IWV has no paid in house web capability. They depend on volunteers.

2.12 Current Web Site Evaluation
   A student through class projects has developed the current web site. Most of the focus was on
demonstrating web-programming techniques. Consequently, the site has not evolved from a
customer specified set of business requirements. Improvements in navigation are most critically
needed. Seventy-five percent of the copy can be used in the updated web site. The other twenty-
five percent of the data is outdated.

2.13 Web Site Upgrade Goals
   a.   Add pull down navigation to all pages (2 levels)
   b.   Add home page banner updated from server file
   c.   Add information page for office, board and committee chairs
   d.   Add recognition for services provided by local businesses
   e.   Add hyperlinks and additional forms
   f.   Expanded photo gallery

2.14 Customer Reference Web Site
{List customer reference web sites for design purposes.}
        a. www.habitat.org
        b. www.habitatsgv.org
        c.

2.15 Expected Web Site Impact on Business
   a. Marketing - The web development effort will require Habitat management to modify the
      existing marketing plan to accommodate the new web site.
   b. Advertising – The website should reduce many of the current costs associated with
      advertising. The budget is small. It is assumed that the web address is already on printed
      material.
   c. Operations – This web site should reduce labor associated with managing construction
      volunteers. Schedules must be kept current. Skill set and number of workers must also
      be identified. It should make potential partner family interest information easier to obtain
      and retain over time, reducing challenges of contacting them. It should also provide a
      more cost effective mechanism for donations when e-commerce is added.



                                                                                               14
                                Specification/Design Document


   d. It is hoped that by recognizing our business partners on the website added synergy
      between the organizations will be maximized.
   e. Communications – Time spent educating people about Habitat should be significantly
      reduced if all the relevant information is adequately communicated on the web site.
   f. Advocacy and awareness of the need for housing should be improved.


2.16 Marketing Plan Update
    The business-marketing plan needs to be modified to include this web site as part of the
overall plan. The web site will be designed to provide a high search engine score. Details are
included later on in this document. The web site will be designed for accessibility by the
visually and hearing impaired. This web site capability will expand your audience and is
required for a high search engine score. Tools will be designed into the web site to provide
visitor statistical data. The information will help evaluate both business performance and web
site performance. This information can be evaluated on whatever time interval desired by the
business.

    The off line part of the business marketing plan will need modification to optimize the
overall business marketing plan. Current business plan includes web address and HFHIWV
Office E-mail address present on all printed material. In the future include the same information
on new products (bumper stickers, etc) and enhanced use of business cards.

3 Information Design
   A web site is about providing information to the web site visitor in a clear and concise way.
The Web Information Design section of this document provides a roadmap to presenting
information to that web site visitor in that clear and concise way. Information design will go
through multiple iterations between the design team and customer to get it right! The steps
include building:
    a. Web Content Outline
    b. Sitemap
    c. Wireframe
    d. Navigation
The Information Design identifies the content of each page and the navigation buttons that leads
the user to that information. Completing web information design prior to visual graphics will
reduce rework.


3.1 Web Content
    Section 3.1 lists web page meta data title, description, and keywords. Search engines use
meta data to rank web sites. Search engines match surfer key words with web site key words to
prepare a list of web sites for the surfer. Browsers display the title at the top of the browser
window outside of the normal web page content. The search engine helps the surfer select a web
site from a list of web sites by displaying the description.

   Title nomenclature in section 3.1 uses XHTML format. Symbols <h1> through <h5> at the
beginning of a line of text indicate a title. H1 indicates level 1 with the largest text. H5 indicates
level 5 and uses the smallest title text. Presentation is defined in the Habitat “Web Style
Guidelines”. See section 1.1 Required Documents of this document.

    Section 3.1 identifies specific web pages. Each web page is packaged in its own computer
file and becomes a Computer Software Configuration Item or CSCI. Each CSCI is put under
configuration control. This control is necessary to maintain quality assurance during the
engineering development process and follow on maintenance.

I‟m not sure that this page will exist. If it does it will feature donors who agree to
have their information put up on the website. I view this as belonging in the next
phase of the project along with Online Credit Card Donations.

Forrest Comment
I think this is a very important page and needs to be populated with all your donors
that want reorganization. I believe Habitat is missing many opportunities to get
future money by not recognizing past donors! We need to separate private and
business donors. For business donors, we need hyperlinks between web sites.

<h1>Girl Scouts of Tustin</h1>
On August 2, 2008 a young Girl Scout from Tustin recently sent in a donation to Habitat IWV.
She explained that each girl in her scout troop had picked a charity for which to raise money.
With her check, sent through a Ridgecrest resident to whom she is related, she said, "I picked
Habitat for Humanity because you are giving homes" [to people]. We thank her for her concern
for people without decent affordable homes, and for her donation to Habitat for Humanity IWV.

<h1>Projects Under Construction</h1>

      HFHIWV normally works on houses on every Saturday and Flex Fridays (days the
base is closed for business). We occasionally work during the week. The hours during
which we work are weather dependent. During most of the year we work from 8:00 am
until 3:00 pm. During hot weather in the summer we work from 7:00 am until 1:00 pm.
We do not work during periods of extreme wind. A light breakfast-style snack is
provided during a morning break, and lunch is served at around noon. We do not
provide meals during weekdays except for Flex Fridays. If you have a group coming in
to stay for a week, we will make arrangements for meals during the work hours

<h2>Construction Project Phases</h2>

<h3>Acquire the Property</h3>

    Property for building homes represents a major cost of a house project. Habitat
property often is donated by individuals or organizations. Many of the local real estate
offices assist at no charge in property acquisition.

<h3>Acquire Plans and Permits</h3>

    The cost of plans and permits has increased significantly in recent years. This cost
cannot be wavered by government agencies due to law. These fees pay for
infrastructure and services such as roads, schools, police, and fire.

<h3>Grading</h3>

   Grading is important to insure building integrity during times of rain and flooding.
Grading is performed at a reduced rate by local business or by volunteers operating
rental equipment.

<h3>Underground Unities</h3>

   Part of the utilities reside underground and are installed prior to pouring a slab. They
can include electric, phone, cable, water, and sewer. New technology is moving water
supply to the attic.

<h3>Foundation</h3>

   Most home foundations in the Indian Wells Valley consist of a slab of concrete sitting
on top of elevated dirt that has been graded. Many times the Habitat volunteer team
lacks skills and equipment to perform this task. In such cases, this phase of
construction is contracted out.


                                                                                          32
                              Specification/Design Document



<h3>Framing</h3>

   Framing is always performed by volunteers. One experienced volunteer can
supervise many unskilled volunteers to frame a house.

<h3>Electrical</h3>

   Electrical is always performed by volunteers. One experienced volunteer can
supervise many unskilled volunteers to wire a house.

<h3>Plumbing</h3>

   Plumbing is always performed by volunteers. One experienced volunteer can
supervise many unskilled volunteers to plumb a house. The sewer system includes a
sub surface and above ground phase. The subsurface work must be performed prior to
installing the slab. The above surface phase is performed after framing is complete.

<h3>Heating and Cooling</h3>
   Heating and cooling is performed by volunteers with some help from professionals.
This phase involves interaction with plumbers and electricians.

<h3>Roof</h3>

    Roofing is performed by volunteers. This work requires attention to safety to reduce
injuries due to falling.

<h3>Landscaping and Flat Work</h3>

   Landscaping and flat work provides character to the property. A little help from the
local nursery goes a long way. Landscaping is transitioning from primarily grass to
native plants to conserve water. The local water district can help with landscape
design.</p>

<h3>Dedication</h3>

    The dedication is a significant Habitat event. Habitat volunteers turn the house over
to the partner family to become a home. By this time the partner family has passed
several interviews, provided sweat equity, and bonded with many of the volunteers.
This event should be a significant milestone in the lives of the partner family. Since
Habitat finances Habitat homes at zero percent interest, the relationship continues until
the home is paid off or sold.

<h1>Ability to Pay</h1>

The following factors will determine whether applicants have resources necessary to
purchase housing with Habitat.

The Habitat for Humanity IWV income window of service is 25% to 50% of the median
income of the Indian Wells Valley. This sets the upper and lower guidelines for a family
of four. The income range is then adjusted for smaller and larger family sized based on
CA/HUD guidelines.

<h2>Minimum Income Guideline</h2>

A family meets this criterion if:
   1. Family must meet a minimum gross income over a four year period
   2. Income includes: (a) employment pay, (b) retirement income, (c) public
       assistance, (d) disability pay, (e) child support, (f) alimony, and (g) income from
       assets or other legitimate activity.
   3. Debt to Income Ratio. A family meets this criterion if its total non-housing debt
       payment does not exceed 10% of family income. Other factor may be
       considered in this area.
   4. Monthly Payment Consistency. A family meets this criterion if the family has
       demonstrated the ability to make regular monthly payments for rent, utilities and
       all other credit obligations.
   5. Liens and Judgments. A family meets this criterion if the family has no liens or
       judgments that cannot be cleared prior to closing.
   6. Closing Costs. A family meets this criterion if the family has available, or can
       accumulate prior to closing, the amount needed to meet the down payment, utility
       deposits, homeowner insurance premium, moving costs and other incidental
       expenses occurring at time of closing.

<h2>Family Selection Income Guidelines</h2>

The income limits used by the Family Selection Committee are based on the following:
   1. Guidance provided in the Habitat for Humanity International Family Selection
      Operations Manual
   2. Information contained in the Profile of General Demographic Characteristics:
      Census 2000 from the U.S. Census Bureau
   3. Information contained in a "Memorandum for Interested Parties," dated April
      2001 from the California Department of Housing and Community Development

      Families whose income is less than 25% of the median probably could not meet
       the Ability to Pay criteria.
      Families whose income is greater than 50% of the median probably could get

<h1>Sweat Equity</h1>

For each Partner Family selected, Sweat Equity time should:
   1. Provide meaningful interaction between families, the Habitat affiliates
      representatives and other volunteers as they work together to build houses.
   2. Develop skills and knowledge about building houses and learn about the
      maintenance issues they will face as homeowners.
   3. Begin the process of transitioning into homeownership through a variety of
      classes including those on financial stability, sale/purchase process, insurance
      requirements, cooking skills for a healthy family.
   4. Increase responsibility and commitment through active engagement in the work
      or tasks that need to be accomplished.

<h2>A Brief Summary of Sweat Equity Requirements</h2>

   1. Five hundred (500) hours of sweat equity is required for each homeowner family.
   2. Forty percent (200 hours) of the required sweat equity is to be completed before
      the construction/rehab begins.
   3. One hundred (100) percent of the required sweat equity is to be completed
      before occupancy.
   4. Volunteers (friends, relatives, co-workers, church family members) can complete
      40% of the required sweat equity. An adult partner family member must be
      working at the job site at the same time volunteers are working in order for the
      hours to count for the Partner Family.
   5. Partner family members are those family members who sign the partnership
      agreement and their dependent children who are and will be living in the same
      household with the parents.

<h2>Some Sample Sweat Equity Opportunities</h2>

   1. Work on the construction site of the Partner Family home. This requires
      supervision by a designated affiliate board member or construction crew
      member.
   2. Work on the construction site of some other Partner Family's home. This also
      requires supervision by a designated affiliate board member or construction crew
      member.
   3. Depending on distance, Partner Families can work on homes being built by
      another affiliate. There must be prior agreement from both Affiliates.
   4. Babysitting may be done by older children of the Partner Family while parents
      are on the job site. Those hours count as family hours but there are limitations on
      the hours. One hour credit is given for two hours of babysitting. If friends or other
      family members babysit, those hours are counted as volunteer hours with the
      same limitations. Volunteers who babysit cannot be paid for doing so.




                                                                                        57
                          Specification/Design Document


5. Attend workshops on such topics as budgeting, home maintenance, water-
    reducing landscaping (xeriscaping) etc. If the workshop is not given by the
    affiliate, prior approval must be obtained from the Family Support Committee.
6. Volunteer work can be done for other non-profit organizations. Prior approval
    from the family support Committee must be obtained. There is a limit on the
    number of hours that can be obtained this way.
7. Participate in speaking engagements as an HFH IWV representative. Prior
    approval from the family Support Committee must be obtained.
8. Serve on Habitat committees, work in the Habitat office, homeowner association
    meetings, fundraisers, food preparation, clean-up at Habitat functions, etc
9. College courses may be completed by the Partner Family while working on their
    sweat equity hours. Courses must be passed with a minimum of a "C" grade.
    Courses must be approved by the Family Support Committee before the class
    begins. Units must be in the pursuit of obtaining a degree or relevant personal
    development goals.
10. Hours will be given for K-12 classes for children of the Partner Family, for core
    classes.
11. Grades for both college and K-12 classes are as follows: an "A" will earn 3 hours,
    "B" will earn 2 hours, and "C" will earn 1 hours. P.E. classes will be counted only
    when they are required in the curriculum.
12. Completion of a high school diploma or GED by an adult who was unable to
    finish high school will be counted.

<h1>Habitat House at 932 W. Oregon St.</h1> {construction picture on the right}
In July 2010 a lovely Habitat for Humanity home was dedicated at 932 W. Oregon to Kristine
Pearl and her children Timothy and Leandra. This home was a result of many faithful, dedicated
volunteers and the partner family working together. Expert builder volunteers, use of energy
efficient materials, and exceeding building codes produced a great, affordable home.


<h1>Partner Family Kristene Pearl and Family takes ownership</h1>
{dedication picture on left}
In October the founder of Habitat of Humanity IWV Bud Shull and his wife Dorothy interviewed
Kristine and her children. The important change Kristine said of her new life as a homeowner is
that she feels very grateful and takes more responsibility. Leandra and Timothy responded, "We
can now play in a safe neighborhood, have friends over, and go for walks in the desert." They
reported that their school work has improved. Leandra wrote that she is an honor student now.
Timothy expressed that riding the bus made him feel safer. They also felt that they had more
time to do their homework. They said, "We love our new home because it belongs to US and it
makes mom happy."

Kristy and Jarrod said," Being a homeowner is such a big change. There is a lot responsibility
that comes being a homeowner. You are responsible for your own repairs. You can not neglect
things needing repairs. We always mention Habitat for Humanity to others. They have given us a
once in a lifetime opportunity. We would love to assist other families in fundraising and
community involvement. We want to help eliminate poverty in the IWV by 2035! " Their ten
year daughter Hailey says that living in a new home means more responsibility with her three
pets. She says, "I enjoy decorating my own room how I want to." Their six year old daughter
Kara says, "I can take better care of my puppy. I can go across the street to see my new friends. I
am doing well in school."

<h1>Habitat House at 904 W. Oregon St.</h1> {picture of house on Right}
Habitat for Humanity IWV in cooperation with HFH International and in partnership with PVC
Plumbing and Mechanical Inc. has built a house in a week's time beginning May 31, 2008 to
June 7, 2008, at 904 Oregon Ave. (off Downs near China Lake Blvd.) for the family of Becky
Bachinski, son Logan and daughter Savannah. The qualifying family must meet income
requirements, be in need of decent affordable housing, and be willing to contribute 500 hours of
sweat equity into building their home, the homes of other families, and participate in homeowner
education classes. Congratulations to all who contributed to this amazing accomplishment! For
more information, visit the Builder Blitz web page.

<h1>Home of Becky, Logan, and Savannah</h1> {dedication picture on left}
Having a Habitat for Humanity home means the world to me. About three years ago me,
my sister and my mother were homeless. My mother has an illness called lupus. It
makes her unable to work. She has taken care of us through all the ups and downs in
our lives. I love her so much!
We were accepted into the Habitat program about two years ago. We were so excited
that Habitat for Humanity IWV chose us. I am so thankful that the Lord has blessed us
so much. Because I have always had to share my room with my sister but now I can
have my own room! I cannot wait until they build our house in June so that we could
have a new life and I hope you know that we thank you so much for giving us a place to
live.
Some people think getting a Habitat home is easy and free. This is not true at all! My
mama, sister, and I have worked very, very hard in getting our hours to receive our
wonderful home. My sister and I kept up our grades for the past two years in order to
help our mama get enough hours to get our home. God has watched over all of us and
made sure my mama hasn't gotten too sick to where she can't live and be able to take
care of us. The Habitat people has been very generous in helping my mama get in our
hours without having to go work in the sun. The people at Habitat always made sure
there was a tarp or something to keep her out of the sun because it could hurt her real
bad. She has sacrificed so many things in order to get the house of our dreams.
Waiting two years has been really difficult. God has provided a way for us to get our
house during a "blitz build" and now we will have our house built by volunteers in one
week. I cannot wait to get into our house. It is going to be so much fun and I am so very
thankful to the Lord and to the Habitat family for helping us make it this far. My future is
bright, and knowing I don't have to worry about having a place to live ever again takes a
lot of worry out of my mind. Now I can focus on my grades and my dream of being a
police man when I grow up.
Thank you to everyone who has helped my family in getting our home. It is a new
beginning for the three of us and this home is a blessing straight from God himself. I am
forever thankful for such a neat house! God bless you all!

<h1>Home was dedicated to Shawna and family in 2007</h1>
The home of Shawna and family was dedicated in 2007. Shawna's Home, originally
dedicated May 2003, was a „recycled‟ home that had belonged to a prior partner family
and was rehabbed for Shawna. (In 2006, Shawna Buckles, a new partner family, rented
this available HFHIWV home and, upon completion of sweat equity hours, became its
owner in July 2007.)

<h1>Partner Family Liz and Dave Allen<h1>
   Liz and Dave Allen were our first partner family. A HUD house purchased by the
Redevelopment Agency and sold to HFHIWV was rehabbed for them. Ownership included 500
sweat hours in their home and other partner families. Their house was dedicated on in June of
2001.

<h2>What the Allen’s had to say in late 2010</h2>

   While attending Crossroads Church, they were the church liaisons for Habitat for Humanity.
They actively identified candidates for partner families. The Allens continue to talk about
Habitat for Humanity’s mission goals, activities, and accomplishments in a very positive way.
They are pleased to tell their friends about how they succeeded in getting a comfortable and
affordable home. Their son David enjoys having his own bedroom for the first time. The Allens
are and continue to be a great success story for this worthwhile organization.

<h1>President's Greeting</h1>

<h2>GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT,</h2>

Welcome to Habitat for Humanity of the Indian Wells Valley (HFHIWV). I am glad that
you are here. We are honored to have you visit our website. I hope that you will stay a
                            while and get to know a little about us.

                                         <h2>WHO WE ARE: </h2>

                              We are in the business of eliminating substandard
                              housing in the Indian Wells Valley in California‟s High
                              Desert. We are a locally run affiliate of Habitat for
                              Humanity International (HFHI), a non-profit, ecumenical
                              Christian Housing organization.



Roland Buchs, President                  <h2>WHAT WE DO: </h2>

We offer a hand-up, rather than a handout to families in need of decent affordable
housing. We help qualifying families who partner with us build their home according to
Habitat standards with mostly volunteer labor, and services, money and materials
donated primarily by individuals, companies, and churches. Selected Partner Families
invest hundreds of hours of labor, called sweat equity, into building their home and the
homes of others. Once completed, homes are sold without interest to the Partner
Families. HFHIWV holds the mortgage and the proceeds from mortgage payments are
used to help build more homes. WHERE WE‟VE BEEN: Since our affiliate was
chartered as a Habitat Affiliate in 2000, and through July, 2010 we have built 15 homes,
provided housing for 17 families and are planning to start two more homes for two more
families shortly. We had also framed and shipped a house to the Gulf Coast for victims
of Hurricane Rita under HFHI‟s Operation Home Delivery.

<h2>OUR VISION: </h2>

No Substandard Housing in the Indian Wells Valley. This is an ambitious goal and we
cannot do it alone. With God‟s guidance and in partnership with like-minded individuals,
churches, businesses and organizations it can be done.

<h2>OUR GOAL: </h2>

To partner with like minded people and organizations so that we can ramp up the rate at
which substandard housing is eliminated. To help enrich the lives of the families we
build with along the way. We believe that helping build families is truly one of our most
important products.


                                                                                      108
                              Specification/Design Document


If you are interested in joining us please contact us. We are in need of volunteers for all
aspects of the business. Please see our “Volunteering” page. As always, funding is one
of the factors that constrain the rate at which we can build. Your generous donation is
timely. Thank you for checking out our “Giving” page.

If you are a potential applicant for a home, see our “Applying for a Home” page.
Applicants are chosen based on need, ability to pay, and willingness to partner. We do
not build houses for partner families, but will build with you and help prepare you for
home ownership. If would like more information, contact us.

I am looking forward to meeting you in person at a Habitat job site, fundraiser, wall
raising, home dedication or other function.

Warm Regards,
Roland Buchs

<h1>The Reason HFHIWV Exists - Irwin (Bud) Shull </h1>

<h1>A Man with a Vision for the Indian Wells Valley</h1>

Bud Shull had worked on the Base at China Lake for a
number of years. After he retired from full-time
employment at China Lake in 1978, he and his wife
Dot became RV enthusiasts and from 1993 to1998
traveled with Habitat Care-A-Vanners, a group of
RVers who like to combine traveling with helping
Habitat for Humanity partner families build their own
homes.

In 1998 when Bud and Dot moved back to the Indian
Wells Valley they shared their very positive Habitat
Care-A-Vanning experiences with several service
clubs and churches in IWV. When the Optimist Club
heard the presentation in the fall of 1998, they
expressed an interest in forming an affiliate in the Indian Wells Valley. They were
convinced there was a real need in Ridgecrest for affordable, decent, safe homes for
low-income families. Optimist Club President, Jack Morrow, Board Member Jim Netzer,
along with Bud Shull and Gary Charlon, agreed to take the necessary action to start an
affiliate in the Indian Wells Valley. They became the official founders of HFHIWV.

With the help of the City of Ridgecrest City Planner Lois Landrum, work was begun on a
Housing Needs Assessment. It was determined there was, in fact, a real need for a
Habitat affiliate in the Indian Wells Valley. There were about 1500 families who lived in
sub-standard conditions and were unable to become homeowners through conventional
means. It was also noted that the 1500 families could qualify for a Habitat home if their
incomes were between 25-50% of the median income in IWV.

People from all parts of the community began to come together to form a Steering
Committee. Among them, in addition to the four founders, were Pam Bradley, Adolphus
Cleveland, David DeAnza, Belen Garza, Maria Gonzalez, Clyde Hazen, Ken Kelley,
Bettye Moody, Maria Morales, Rosa Maria Ortega, Charlotte Paulsen, Mike Pierce,
Mark Roether, and Maria Magdelena Sosa and Jean Throckmorton. Articles of
Incorporation were filed with the State of California and the IRS, and non-profit status as
a 501(c)(3) Public Benefit Corporation was received in February 2000.

When the application for Affiliate Status was submitted, the Board of Directors was:
Gary Charlon, President; John Morrow, Vice President; Charlotte Paulsen, Secretary;
Harold Manning, CPA, Treasurer; Dan Tobias, Attorney and Judge, legal advisor;
Committee chairs Clyde Hazen, Steve Rollins, Bettye Moody, Ken Kelley, Mike Pierce,



                                                                                       111

Howard Auld; and additional members Adolphus Cleveland, Maria Morales, Jim Netzer,
Mark Roether, Bud Shull, and Jean Throckmorton,

A letter dated May 1, 2000, and signed by Ted Swisher, Director of U.S. Affiliates for
Habitat for Humanity International, gave final approval of the affiliation of Habitat for
Humanity of the Indian Wells Valley.

<h1>Operating Committees</h1>

We would not be able to function at all without the dedicated people who serve on the
operating committees of Habitat for Humanity IWV. : Perhaps you would like to
participate on one of them?

<h2>Family Selection</h2>

This committee is tasked with finding and qualifying low-income families in need of
decent affordable housing. They recommend families to the HFHIWV Board of
Directors who select the Partner Families based on need, ability to pay, and willingness
to partner.
Teri Morrow, Chair

<h2>Family Support </h2>

This committee works with Partner Families after they have been selected, providing
learning opportunities and tracking sweat equity while their houses are being built or
rehabbed.
Roland Buchs and Monica Watson, Co-Chairs

<h2>Construction/Site Selection</h2>

This committee locates available lots or houses which may be donated or sold at a
reduced price to HFHIWV and provides this information to the Board of Directors for
follow-up action. They also have plans drawn according to HFH standards by an
architect, submit them to the City of Ridgecrest for approval and prepare the site for
construction or rehabbing of the house. With Partner Families and additional
volunteers, they construct or rehab the house, obtain building inspection approvals and,
when necessary, place concrete sidewalks.
Randy Langloss, Chair

<h2>Fund Raising</h2>

More correctly called Resource Development, this committee raises money to support
the HFHIWV building program. They do this by seeking monetary donations, grants
and special funding so that HFHIWV can continue to work toward its goal of eliminating
substandard housing in the Indian Wells Valley. Ten percent of the undesignated money
raised is sent to HFHI for building homes in other countries.
Teri Morrow, Chair

<h1>Past Events</h1>
   Habitat for Humanity IWV has well-established processes to accomplish the
organization‟s primary mission and goals. However, when called on by community,
nation, and the world to address a special need, we rise to the occasion. This is best
explained by the projects successfully completed and listed below:

<h2>Camplighters</h2>
These southern California retired RVers have given local volunteers a big boost in their
building efforts since 2004. They have made over 5 trips to Ridgecrest to help this most
worthwhile effort. Thank you Chuck and Barbara Wolfe, Tom and Mary Waller, Don and
Dorothy Sheldrake, Bill and Judy McGee, Pete and Patty Louchheim, and Dick and
Joyce Holdsworth.

<h2>Katrina “House in a Box” Project<h2>
   The US Golf cost area was devastated when hurricane Katrina packing 100 plus
winds and rain heading north crossed our borders into Mississippi and Louisiana. Not
only were homes destroyed but also infrastructure needed to provide basic services
such as police protection, electricity water, sewer, passable roads, and transportation
fuel. Habitat build a house in Ridgecrest that was packaged in a container, trucked to
Louisiana and assembled on site.

  Day 7, June 6, 2008: The color coat was applied to the stucco. Appliances,
countertop were installed. The yard was landscaped, the carpet layed, touch up
painting done, cleanup done on windows. Cooler and furnace installed. We declared
the house complete upon carpet installation! <br />
<br />
  Day 6, June 5, 2008: We installed the laundry room bifold doors, door casings, base
boards, vanity cabinets, sinks, and toilets. We installed a water heater and the finish
mechanical items, such as registers and Updux. Door knobs were put in place
throughout the house. We caulked, painted the prime coat, and the finish coat. We
were able to finish the painting today thanks to the assistance of the professional
painters. And the backyard was leveled. Yesterday's bad winds subsided today, and we
were able to spray paint the eaves. The electricians completed most of the finish
electrical items, such as fans, lights, switches, and receptacles. Finally we cleaned up,
and cleaned up, and cleaned up! <br />
<br />
Day 5, June 4, 2008: Today's focus was on finish carpentry and stucco. We hung all of
the doors and installed all the cabinets. The first coat of stucco was applied. We also
installed the window sills, most of the door casings, and about a third of the baseboard.
Today's 40 mph winds made for miserable working conditions for those having to deal
with the outside elements. <br />
<br />
Day 4, June 3, 2008: The garage door was installed, most of the roofing is in place;
taping, mudding, texturing are completed; floor tiles in the bathrooms and kitchens are
being completed as this is being written. <br />
<br />
  Day 3, June 2, 2008: We passed our rough-in inspections at about 7:30 a.m. and the
insulators completed their work by noon. After lunch, three wallboard companies
brought crews in and hung essentially all of the drywall by 5 p.m. There is about one
hour of drywall work left. Taping and mudding began as rooms were completed. <br />
<br />
Day 2, June 1, 2008: The rough-in mechanical, electrical, and plumbing are
complete. <br />
<br />
Day 1, May 31, 2008: Becky's house has been framed, trusses set, roof sheathing
completed. the rough-in mechanical, electrical, and plumbing were completed day 2.
We are well on our way to completing a house in 8 days.</p>

May 18, 2008<br /> <strong>Turner Family Lays Hands.</strong> Tina Turner and her
children: Tyler, Danielle, Seth, and Craig had fun, especially Seth, when they each laid
their hands in newly-poured concrete. Ken Kelley supervised the water event.

<h1>Camplighters, a Retired RVing Group, Come to Work with
HFHI</h1>

Habitat for Humanity IWV was contacted several years ago by an RVing group that likes
to do “something different” when they take trips. HFHIWV has happily welcomed our
friends from southern California, who have thus far made 5 visits, eager to put their
hands to work for Habitat families. Members of the Camplighters include Chuck and
Barbara Wolfe, Tom and Mary Waller, Don and Dorothy Sheldrake, Bill and Judy
McGee, Pete and Patty Louchheim, Dick and Joyce Holdsworth, and others. These
retirees have given our local volunteers a big building boost.

<h1>Katrina Relief Project for Mobile Alabama</h1>
Shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast, Habitat for Humanity US put together a
program for replacing homes for partner families in the area. HFHIWV with the assistance of
Home Depot and the community, laid out a house, framed it, took it apart and put it into a sea
crate. Additional building materials such as wall board, tape and mudding material, and tools
were added. Maersk shipping transported it at no cost to Mobile Alabama, the affiliate with
which HFHIWV partnered. There it was rebuilt by volunteers on a pad placed by the Mobile
affiliate. The whole project was completed in two days, September 22 - 23, 2006 in the Home
Depot Parking lot. HFHIWV owes a debt of gratitude to all the people who helped by donating
and volunteering on this project. Photos of the project can be seen by clicking the links below.

3.2 Sitemapping
   The sitemap shows a visual representation of the site‟s structure, organization, flow,
and grouping of content. Every page gets a box and most major links are represented.
The sitemap also shows interaction between the front end and back end if the site has a
backend. The backend refers to functions that perform actions that the visitor may or
may not directly interact with. Examples include login, database store and retrieval, and
dynamic page changes.

3.3 Wireframing
  Wireframing is storyboarding a web page. It identifies all major content on a page
and can have some graphic art but not required.

{Wireframing is performed for unique main, secondary, and templatized pages.
Wireframing checklist:
Images/figures/illustrations
Content general or actual if available
Global navigation
Functionality is described
Primary links
Secondary links
Media
Actual window size including pixel measurements
Header and Footer documentation}

{For coloring, specify hex numbering for the background, main palette, and accents.
Clearly indicate which colors get applied to navigation headers, what color for text when
background color changes what color for buttons, bullets, arrows, stars, and other
graphic accents. Be sure to specify all body text/content and links.}


3.3.1 All Pages
    Every page will contain a banner with the Habitat for Humanity IWV logo, name
displayed and the UW and EOH logos. Most pages will require the ability to place a
special banner just under the tabs line so that events and critical information can be
inserted easily. The various features will be phased in over several periods of
development. Additional email addresses may be needed for HFHIWV to accomplish
this.




                                                                                         147

3.4 Navigation
   Navigation directs the web site visitor to the content and action they are interested in.
Navigation defines the content and the tone of the company. Navigation naming must
be consistent throughout the web site.

  {Four common navigation models are directed, searchable, tabbed, and linear.
Choose the navigation model that best directs your visitors to their area of interest.

    If the web site is being used to purchase a product, provide a path that gets the user
to the purchase in the least amount of mouse clicks and windows requiring
interpretation. }



3.4.1 Tabbed Navigation
    Tab navigation is when tabs or navigation buttons are used to move from one web page to
another. Level 0 below is the landing web site page or top level web page that most visitors see
first when visiting the web site. Level 1 is the tabs displayed at the top of all pages. Level 2 are
pull down navigation tabs that display when the curser is moved over the level 1 tab. Level 3 is
the pull down menu that is displayed when the mouse cursor is moved to the level 2 tap. See
drawing below.

4 Visual Design/Presentation
   Visual design starts after the content design phase has been completed. The content will
drive the visual look. At the end of this section, a web page prototype will be used to capture
some of the visual interface. Key support documents to complete section 4 are:
    a. Old web site
    b. Web Site Proposal Phase I - Web Site Definition Document
    c. Web Site Evaluation Document
    d. Web Site Audience Profile Report

   Products produced in section 4 include:
   a. Web Site Style Guide Document
   b. Prototype web site
                   i. Evaluate colors
                  ii. Page layout
                 iii. Navigation
                 iv. Some functionality

4.1 Define Smart Design
    Ridgecrest is a technology affluent community. Most have access to the Internet using high
bandwidth networks, fast computers, and high-resolution screens. The visitor profiles indicate
surfers will be all ages, even distribution of female and male, and varied incomes. Even low-
income partner families have access to high-end computers and fast networks in Ridgecrest. The
following web site will provide general information about equipment in use:
http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_display.asp .


   Significant cost savings can be achieved by designing this web site to target most of the local
visitors. The web site will be optimized for the following equipment:
    a. High speed Internet access (Cable modem and DSL).
    b. Computers no more than 5 years old.
    c. Browsers no more than 3 years old.
    d. 17 inch computer screens, 65K colors, 1024 X 768 pixels,

   The current web design is targeting computer screens. However, in the near future, this web
site should be optimized for handheld devices. It is safe to say that less than 50% of the people
surfing the World Wide Web are not using handhelds. People that do surf using handhelds are
generally disappointed. The web sites load slow and are hard to view on the small screens.
Surfers that have a bad experience accessing a web site will seldom go back to that site.


4.2 Review Site Goals

                                 Specification/Design Document


   a. This web site will leverage off Habitat for Humanity branding by following the Habitat
      style guide. This will add credibility to the web site and Habitat for Humanity IWV.
   b. When a surfer arrives at the web site, they will locate their information of interest in one
      or two mouse clicks.
   c. The tone will indicate a low-keyed competent group of people helping the less fortunate
      in our community.
   d. Habitat staff that has the information source will maintain high change rate information
      on the web site.
   e. Copy writes information will be avoided to reduce expense.
   f. A combination of copy, photos, and video will create a positive learning experience.


4.3 Developing Concepts
   Review the prototype web site at location http://habitfl.information-systems.us/ . This review
does not include the customer. Good design ideas are located at http://www.alvit.de/web-
dev/index.html .


4.4 Designing for Your Audience
   Review the prototype web site at location http://habitfl.information-systems.us/ . Is the
design consistent with other Habitat web sites? Will the web site navigation lead the surfer to
the area of interest in one or two clicks of the mouse? Is the web site pleasing to the viewer?
Does the web site tell the Habitat story?


4.5 Presenting Design and Gathering Feedback
    Review the prototype web site at location http://habitfl.information-systems.us/ . Limit
designs to three choices or less. Review designs internally before showing designs to customer.
Request a written response. Questions to ask include:
     a. Is what the company has to offer clear?
     b. What action will a visitor take after arrival?
     c. Is the web site organization comprehensive?
     d. Is the interface appealing?
     e. Move forward or redesign visual interface?
If the client has been through several iterations and still having difficulty deciding, the project
scope may need modification.}

4.6 Testing Functionality
    Functionality testing should be limited here to high-risk areas that need design clarity and/or
risk mitigation. The following functions have been tested at the prototype web site and include:
    a. Include web site content from a server file at web page load time. Server files are easy to
        modify and do not require web site software modifications.
    b. Included roll over drop down navigation tabs to easily navigate web sites.
    c. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) control all web site presentation. CSS allows software
        engineers to change one file that will impact all web site pages. It is a huge time saver.


                                                                                                155
                                Specification/Design Document


   d. Web Forms have been tested and work. Currently, a third party server is performing this
      function. The goal is to move this capability onto our server and eliminate the third
      party.
   e. Pictures on a web page change from load to load to keep the site interesting for the surfer
      making multiple visits. Each picture has an associated picture folder on the server with
      many pictures. A picture is randomly selected from the folder at each web page load.

4.7 Create Graphic Templates
    Graphic art items are made ready here to support the web site. They must work with XHTML
and CSS. Review customer provided content for web ready now. All copyright items are listed
in section 4.9 along with cost.

   Items developed for the web site by the team are done now. Photoshop and Illustrator are
good tools to support this effort. Each item is documented to include the tool that produced the
item, format, pixel density, and other design data. The original layered file is kept to support
redesign and maintenance efforts later.

  The items can be made available for review as stand alone items or/and incorporated into the
web prototype for review and approval. The items include:
   a. Page layout
   b. Logos
   c. Pictures

   {The list includes logos, photographs, background images, and graphic arts. These items
include global items such as the header, footer, and navigation artwork. Also included are
specific page art works. }




                                                                                              156
                    Specification/Design Document


4.7.1 Page Layout

                                 Specification/Design Document




4.7.2 HUD Logo
   The below logo is displayed in the right hand side of the web site footer. Habitat provides
housing and finance for the poor and follows HUD policies.




4.7.3 United Way Logo
   The below logo is displayed in the right hand side of the web site footer. Untied Way
provides funding for Habitat for Humanity IWV.




4.7.4 Photographs, Video, Galleries
   Photos and video play a dominant role in telling the Habitat story on this web site. They
provide recognition for the many volunteers and a sense of community for the partner family
members. Video is just coming into its own with Habitat and we will see much more in future
website builds. However, there is a wealth of photos and photo galleried targeting specific
homes and partner families. This specification captures that valuable habitat resource.

   Unless otherwise stated make all photographs landscape, 260 pixels X 171 pixels. This will
be displayed on the screen at about 3 inches by 2 inches with a small border. The ratio of width
to height match most digital cameras.


   Some of the pictures on a web site change from load to load to keep the site interesting for the
surfer making multiple visits. To accomplish this, each picture frame has an associated picture
folder on the server with many pictures. A picture is randomly selected from the folder at web
page load time. For this mechanism to work, all photos must be the same pixel density and
picture dimensions.

    To make pictures come to life, they must be clipped and sized for the frame size at the web
site. There is a limit on how much clipping and expanding can take place of a picture before it
becomes granny. Modern digital cameras have very high pixel density. However, if a picture
has already been adjusted for web use, the high resolution may not be present.

Home
Five + photos of house being build – 510 pixels wide X 300 pixels high
Video wall rising – 850 pixels wide X 575 pixels high


                                                                                               158
                                 Specification/Design Document



Giving
  Need about 5 portrait photographs of partner families 260 pixels high by 171 pixels wide.
The purpose of these pictures is to let volunteers know whom they are helping in our community.

Volunteering
   This site needs groups of pictures for categories to include: construction, office help, meal
preparation, and special skills. This is a great way to recognize volunteer help on the web page.
At least 5 pictures per category would be great.

Care-a-Vanners
   Need five or more pictures of out of town volunteers building houses. This will be important
for recruiting future volunteers.

Projects
   Need five or more pictures of houses during the different phases of construction, which
include: grading, underground utilities, foundation, framing, electrical, plumbing, heating and
cooling, roofing, and landscaping.

Applicants
  Need five or more photographs of ribbon cutting ceremonies with partner family.

Youth
Need five or more photographs of youth doing Habitat work.

BHS
Need one or more photographs of BHS students working on a house. Might include school
advisor taken at BHS>

Homeowners
  Will use same pictures used in “Applicants” above.

4.8 Creating a Design Style Guide
   The “Web Design Style Guide Document” documents the web site style. This document will
be used to develop the complete web site. The style guide will include the XHTML template and
associated CSS file produced for the web site prototype. Use this document to support
maintenance after the web site has been launched.

   {Normally more than one web page template will be required for a web site. Large web
pages could have a dozen templates.}


4.9 Copyright Protected Material List
    The following copyright protected items along with their cost are planned for use in this web
site and include:
    a. HUD logo – no cost
    b. United Way logo – no cost
    c. Pictures – All produced and owned by Habitat for Humanity IWV


                                                                                              164

5 Functions
   Functions can be larger-scale technology issues that may include high-level programming and
backend development. Web functions are also known as backend processes. Example functions
include:
    a. Search engines
    b. Personalization (login/cookie set)
    c. Security features
    d. Survey/voting tools
    e. Email newsletter distribution
    f. Shopping cart
    g. Discussion board/bulletin board
    h. News/press release area

   Backend functions that will be applied to this web page are:
   a. High change rate content will be provided at web site load time from a data file kept
      current by Habitat personal.
   b. MySQL database will be used to support the web site BLOG.

5.1 Search Engine Score Enhancements
    Acquiring a high search engine score is not critical for the Habitat for Humanity IWV web
site. Search engines will find our web site when the surfer enters key words: “Habitat” and
“Ridgecrest”. There is only one Habitat in all of Ridgecrest. However, all the standard search
engine tools will be applied to this web site.

    Search engine companies keep web site scoring algorithms secret. The intent is to maximum
the experience for the web site audience and not allow web developers to utilize gimmicks to
inflate scores. The search engine companies do tell web developers what types of web
capabilities and characteristics they are looking for.

   Key words were discussed in the content design section of this document. At this point the
key words should already be identified and are located in the web site content as well.
For more information, visit: http://www.thesitewizard.com/


HTML Title tag
   The title tag is used to bookmark pages and describes the page content. A descriptive title
makes bookmarks useful to the visitor and improves search engine scores. Guidance on good
page titles can be found at http://www.sitepoint.com/article/html-title/2/ . Go to section 3.1 of
this document to review the title for each web page.

Meta Data – Description
   Write a description of the web site purpose here. Length should not exceed 200 characters.
For guidance on how to write a description, visit



                                                                                                166
                                 Specification/Design Document


http://htmlhelp.com/reference/html40/head/meta.html . Go to section 3.1 of this document to
review the meta data, Description used in this web site.

Meta Data – Keywords
  List 20 to 30 keywords that relate to the web site subject. For details, visit Appendix A of this
document. Go to section 3.1 of this document to review the meta data key words used in this
web site.

5.2 Meta Tag - Robots
   The meta tag robots is used to instruct robots to search your web site using web site links.
Add tag: <meta name="robots" content="index,follow" /> to the web index page. For more
information, visit: http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/metatags.shtml . Meta Tag Robots will
not be used on his web site.


Search Engine Robot Include Directive
   File sitemap.xml contains directives to a visiting search engine robot on which web pages to
make indexes for. This increases the likely hood that a search engine will score your web site
correctly when web surfers search the Internet. For information on construction this file, visit
web site: http://www.sitemaps.org/ . Go to the “Software Coding Standards Document” to see
an example. Directives will not be used on this web site.

Search Engine Robot Exclude Directive
   The robot exclusion standard, also known as the Robots Exclusion Protocol or robots.txt
protocol, is a convention to prevent cooperating web spiders and other web robots from
accessing all or part of a website which is otherwise publicly viewable. This increases the likely
hood that a search engine will score your web site correctly when web surfers search the Internet.
For information on construction this file, visit web site:
http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/robots.shtml . Go to the “Software Coding Standards
Document” to see an example. The Exclude directive will not be used in this web site.

Validate Web Site Syntax
   All web pages will be validated.

    A text equivalent for every non-text element shall be provided (e.g., via "alt", "longdesc", or
in element content).


Color Only
   Web pages shall be designed so that all information conveyed with color is also available
without color, for example from context or markup.

Style Sheet Requirements
   Documents shall be organized so they are readable without requiring an associated style
sheet.




                                                                                                 168
                                  Specification/Design Document


Redundant Links
   Redundant text links shall be provided for each active region of a server-side image map.

Client-Side Image
   Client-side image maps shall be provided instead of server-side image maps except where the
regions cannot be defined with an available geometric shape.

Table Requirements
   Use either the caption or the summary tag to summarize table information. Use row and
column header tags to describe rows and columns. Use thead, tfoot, and tbody structural
grouping tags.

Screen Flicker
  Pages shall be designed to avoid causing the screen to flicker with a frequency greater than 2
Hz and lower than 55 Hz.

Form Requirements
   When electronic forms are designed to be completed on-line, the form shall allow people
using assistive technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required
for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues. See
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-HTML-TECHS/#forms
    a. Provide logical tabs through links, form controls and objects
    b. Group form controls
    c. Explicitly connect labels and controls
    d. Include text with graphical buttons

Plug-in Links
   When a web page requires that an applet, plug-in or other application be present on the client
system to interpret page content, the page must provide a link to a plug-in or applet that complies
with §1194.21(a) through (l).

Time Extension
   When a timed response is required, the user shall be alerted and given sufficient time to
indicate more time is required.


Proper Text Markup
    Using markup improperly -- not according to specification -- hinders accessibility. Misusing
markup for a presentation effect (e.g., using a table for layout or a header to change the font size)
makes it difficult for users with specialized software to understand the organization of the page
or to navigate through it.




                                                                                                 169

                                  Specification/Design Document



6 Technical Constraints
   The Technical specification is the most important part of the specification to get right the first
time. It is made up of hard facts and will cause significant rework later if it is modified. This
section includes:
    a. Technical architecture
    b. Security
    c. Server specification
    d. User machine specification
    e. Other

6.1 Technical Architecture
   The web site will use XHTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, MySQL. Data will not be passed
between web pages. Each web page will be packaged in its own file and each file will be
identified as PHP. The web site will not be designed for handheld devices.

6.2 Security
  Web sites can be used to penetrate into a server and collect information and do damage.
Measures will be taken during the web site design, code, and test to reduce these risks.

Cross-site Scripting
   Cross-site scripting occurs when a visitor enters information into a form that damages or
provides access to information on the server not intended. Validating form data on the client
machine and on the server will mitigate this risk. Data will be validated on the client and server
machine.

Injection Flows
   When user-supplied data is sent to interpreters as part of a command or query, hackers trick
the interpreter – which interprets text-based commands – into executing unintended commands.
Injection flows allow attackers to create, read, update or delete any arbitrary data available to the
application. In the worst-case scenario, those flows allow an attacker to completely compromise
the application and the underlying systems, even bypassing deeply nested fire walled
environments.

Malicious File Execution
    Hackers can perform remote code execution, remote installation of root kits, or completely
compromise a system. Any type of web application is vulnerable if it accepts filenames or files
from users. The vulnerability may be most common with PHP, a widely used scripting language
for web development. This problem will be mitigated by not allowing any person to upload file
data to the server accept Habitat for Humanity trusted people.

Cross-site request forgery
  This attack takes control of victim‟s browser when it is logged on to a web site, and sends
malicious requests to the web application. This web site will not use login.


                                                                                                 171
                                 Specification/Design Document




Insecure direct object reference
   Attackers manipulate direct object references to gain unauthorized access to other objects. It
happens when URLs or form parameters contain references to objects such as files, directories,
database records or keys.

Information Linkage & Improper Error Handling
   Error messages that applications generate and display to users are useful to hackers when they
violate privacy or unintentionally leak information about the program‟s configuration and
internal workings. Error messages will not be provided to users.

Broken Authentication and session management
    User and administrative accounts can be hijacked when applications fail to protect credentials
and session tokens from beginning to end. Watch for privacy violations and the undermining of
authorization and accountability controls. Flaws in the main authentication mechanism are not
uncommon, but weaknesses are more often introduced through ancillary authentication functions
such as logout, password management, timeout, remember me, secret questions and account
update, “OASP writes. Only trusted Habitat people will be given user name and passwords to
access the server.

Insecure Cryptographic Storage
   Protecting sensitive data with cryptography has become a key part of most web applications.
Simply failing to encrypt sensitive data is very widespread. Applications that do encrypt
frequently contain poorly designed cryptography; either using inappropriate ciphers or making
serious mistakes using strong ciphers. These flaws can lead to disclosure of sensitive data and
compliance violations. This feature will be applied to form data.

Insecure Communications
   This is a failure to encrypt network traffic when it‟s necessary to protect sensitive
communications attackers can cross unprotected conversations, including transmissions of
credentials and sensitive information. For this reason, PCI standards require encryption of credit
card information transmitted over the Internet. No critical personal information will be sent
through the web site.

Failure To Restrict URL Crosses
   Some web pages are supposed to be restricted to a small subset of privileged users, such as
administrators. Yet often theirs no real protection of these pages and hackers can find the URLs
by making educated guesses.

6.4 Visitor Viewing Equipment Requirements
   A variety of equipment is available to view web sites. The viewing equipment is evolving as
fast as the technology. Currently hand held devices are growing in popularity. Their screens are
small and the user interface is different than computer workstations. Web sites are designed


                                                                                            173

Browsers/OS/Computer for Screens
   Different browsers, Operating Systems (OS), and computers sometimes render web sites
differently if special web site software is not deployed. For this reason, web sites are tested with
multiple combinations of equipment. To minimize cost, review customer profiles and choose
equipment most commonly used by visitors. For the latest statistics on viewing equipment
usage, visit: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp and

9 Future Enhancements
   Web site development is best performed in phases. A phased approach reduces risk for the
development team and the customer. Knowing what future enhancements are being considered
will minimize rework when those enhancements or implemented. Listed below are
recommended future enhancements:
    1. Photo Gallery
    2. BLOG
    3. Social Network Sites
    4. Video
    5. E-commerce
    6. Data insertion at web site load for high change rate content. This feature allows people
       with word processing skills to update web contest.
    7.
A The Initial phase will cover primary tabs, photograph inclusion, and text content, with logos,
for the most important information. It will contain all information available on the current
website, but in a more graphically interesting and inviting format. It will cover secondary tabs
where this makes access to information easier and friendlier to those visiting the site.

B      A second will include activation of all planned secondary and tertiary tabs, banners for
key pages and photo gallery access.

C       A third phase will include video clips and revisions to the website based on use of the
site by HFHIWV Board Members and staff. Current donors may be specifically asked to use
and review the site before this phase implementation for their opinions on content and ease of
use. Also during this phase specific Advocacy materials will be included on the website,
including such things as statistics on substandard housing and ways to assist in raising
awareness of the need for housing in the HFHIWV area and the world. A new tab may be
required for this information.

D      A fourth phase may be added to include a secure area in which HFHIWV Staff, Board
Members and Committee Chairs may post and share information such as reports for Board
meetings and tracking hours for partner families. Also possible for inclusion in this phase would
be social networking links.

Appendix A – Handicapped Requirements
   Section 508 of the Workforce Rehabilitation Act as amended in 1998 (http://www.access-
board.gov/508.htm ) requires that the web sites of Federal agencies be accessible. Section 508
has no direct bearing on public, non-government web sites. But Section 508 has indirect effect
on the accessibility of public information technology, as was the intent of the law. There is a
robust set of Accessibility Standards developed as part of Section 508 (http://www.access-
board.gov/sec508/guide/index.htm ). Those standards serve to define accessibility of information
technology. The idea is that companies will develop accessible technology to sell to the
government and then use that same technology for all customers. When web development
companies write accessible web sites for Federal agencies they will be able to use the same
techniques and practices for all clients.

The following list of web sites provides background information on when and how web sites
should be designed for handicapped people.
