Our mission

Since 2000, Hazelwood Initiative has published The Homepage, providing nearly 10,000 households each month with news and advertising that speak to the shared concerns and interests of Greater Hazelwood, Greenfield, the 31st Ward, and Four Mile Run. We are a recognized and trusted source of hyper-local news, updates and community voices covering local  development, the environment, health, housing, infrastructure and more.

The Homepage follows the principals of ethical journalism. Even though The Homepage operates out of the Hazelwood Initiative office, we are committed to covering our entire circulation area with integrity, impartiality, humanity and  accountability. We do our best to achieve these ideals but when we fail, we admit the error and openly correct it in print and online. 


We respect the identity and independence of each of the communities we serve. The Homepage strives to be a platform for residents to engage in equitable community development, share their views, celebrate their successes, ask questions and connect with their neighbors.

Advertising in The Homepage connects you with potential customers in your neighborhood and the communities closest to you, creating a loyal customer base you can build on

We offer 

  • Ad pricing designed to be affordable for small businesses 

  • Discounts for community-based nonprofits and multi-month ad purchases


By choosing to advertise in The Homepage, you are supporting local journalism and helping keep this important free community resource active and sustainable.
