Who we are

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, Lincoln Place, Hays, New Homestead and Four Mile Run.

We are a recognized and trusted source of hyper-local news about development, the environment, health, housing, infrastructure, transit and other topics relevant to our readers. We encourage civic engagement and meaningful discourse through updates from elected officials and a range of contributors from our circulation area.

The Homepage follows the principals of ethical journalism. We do our best to achieve these ideals but when we fail, we admit the error and openly correct it in print and online.

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.

We operate out of the Hazelwood Initiative office, but respect the uniqueness of each of the communities we serve. We are committed to covering our entire circulation area impartially, with integrity, humanity and  accountability.
