Los Angeles, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
SHIELDS for Families (SHIELDS) has announced the launch of its new website - shieldsforfamilies.org - designed to provide visitors access to up-to-the-minute information about the organization, its programs and services. The state-of-the-art platform, developed by QuantumMethod, is the nonprofit community's crown jewel of websites and functional technology. The new site features a purposeful user interface, user-friendly navigation, and detailed descriptions of all SHIELDS programs -- all powered by an integrated backbone that includes systems like CRM software, CMS layer, traffic analytics, social media integration, and online donations.
"We are so pleased to unveil our new website," says Kathy Icenhower, executive director and co-founder of SHIELDS. "It truly reflects the depth and breadth of our services to the community. We are all excited to use this new communication platform to better inform the community about our programs and services and to gain more support for our children and families."
The new website is just one of the many aspects to the organizations re-branding and renewed outreach effort, which began to roll-out early last year with the introduction of a new logo, only the second in the organization's 20-year history. “SHIELDS is such a critical public service provider in the Southern California area that we felt an incredible sense of responsibility when given the task to help re-brand the organization,” says George Tierney, COO and creative director, QuantumMethod. “This new website, and integrated systems, will give SHIELDS the ability to leverage the digital media universe to further perpetuate the important services it provides the people it serves.”
