The Homepage

Serving the communities of Greater Hazelwood, Greenfield, 31st Ward, New Homestead, and The Run

Homepage online archives

Our mission

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

Even though The Homepage operates out of the Hazelwood Initiative office, we are committed to covering our entire readership while respecting the identity and independence of each of the communities we serve. We strive to make the paper a platform for residents to engage in community development, share opinions, celebrate successes, ask questions and connect with their neighbors.
