Astor Services for Children & Families
(formerly The Astor Home for Children)

URL: http://astorservices.org

Description: New website for a large social services agency.

With a major upgrade in 2016, this website is now in its third iteration since its launch in 2006. An extensive website which has continued to grow and evolve, it strives, like its parent organization, to meet the ever-changing needs of its visitors and clients.

Requirements and features:
  • Depict the authority, scope and history of a venerable organization;
  • Work with executives to help them define the identify of the organization and the goals of their web presence;
  • Provide informative and engaging content for a diverse range of visitors: clients, staff, donors, outside professionals, and many others;
  • Present a preferred narrative structure while allowing easy navigation to specific information. A user-friendly site was a primary goal;
  • Organize and present information in a hierarchical, as-much-as-you-want fashion;
  • Meet the needs and gain the approval of a large and diverse group of executives; incorporate the input of dozens of individuals and work collegially within the personnel structure of the organization;
  • Completely user-editable, this WordPress-based site uses multiple custom content types to make content creation as easy as filling out a form for in-house editors without any web experience;
  • Contact forms route messages to different individuals and locations, and presents differently when accessed from different parts of the site;
  • Extensive original copy writing as well as editing all written material to maintain a uniform voice. This required an extensive immersion in the workings of the organization and an ability to work well with many individuals;
  • A custom-built job board and online employment application processes between 600 and a thousand applications per month and has resulted in savings of tens of thousands of dollars for the organization;
  • Error free, validating HTML and CSS coding throughout.

Astor is an organization which is deservedly proud of what they do. The website development project has helped their fund-raising, helped them to define their self image, and allowed them to present themselves with pride and authority befitting the quality and level of services which they provide.
