Charles River Center’s mission is to empower and support people with developmental disabilities by offering high-quality, individualized opportunities that foster independence and community inclusion. Their old website was disorganized and difficult to navigate. When we started the project we added a website poll to their old website to collect feedback from visitors on if the website was easy to use, what they were looking for and what they could not find. The data come back and showed that many visitors found the website difficult to navigate and they could also not find simple things such as the addresses for their multiple locations. We incorporated this feedback and structured the website to feature all services and locations while utilizing a mega menu on the website. This allowed us to better display the different pages and sections of the website including general information pages, news, events, careers and more! After launching the website we activated the same website poll and saw a huge turnaround with the feedback. Visitors were finding the information they needed and provided feedback that the website was easy to navigate. Looking for a website design company for non-profits?
