Friends of the Homeless
Friends of the Homeless is a one stop resource center that makes a life-changing difference for those in need within the Greater Springfield area. Their mission is to help those in need during the difficult journey from homelessness to stability. They help those in our community who have the greatest need and provide emergency shelter, meals 365 days a year, permanent housing, and a robust resource shelter that includes computers, case managers, and a health clinic. Their care reaches beyond Springfield – they’ve helped individuals from 50 MA cities and towns. Their cause is noble and it was an honor to help such a worthwhile organization refresh their website.
When exploring how to update their online presence, the team at Friends of the Homeless made it clear that ease of use was key. If you’re facing homelessness or trying to help someone who is, there are enough things to worry about without adding a complicated resource center website on top. We helped to streamline their navigation so that anyone using the site – whether they’re a donor, volunteer, or someone in need – would find the information they were looking for quickly and easily.
As with any site, the look of the new and improved site was just as important as the functionality. We’ve all heard not to judge a book by its cover, but with something as visual as a website, that cliché is hard to live by. Friends of the Homeless came to us because they wanted a new site that was sharp and as dignified as their cause, and that’s exactly what we gave them. We created a fresh color scheme and set of icons that Friends of the Homeless is now using in other applications as well. We’ve always believe that every exceptional organization deserves an exceptional website, so we’re glad we were able to make that happen for Friends of the Homeless.
