Portland Web Design | HOPE Animal-Assisted Crisis Response
I like doing web design for non-profits whenever I can, because supporting good work in the community? That’s pretty awesome. This particular non-profit web site was a pretty ambitious project: I did a full WordPress redesign of their web site, and also built them a Members-Only login area, and helped set them up to run regional and board elections online!
HOPE Animal-Assisted Crisis Response was founded in 2001, right here in the Northwest, and they’ve expanded into a nationwide organization that brings canine comfort to help people in need. HOPE sends specially-trained human-and-canine volunteer teams to people affected by disasters, and gives much-needed comfort in trying times.
The bonus for HOPE? Now, they have a modern look-and-feel, with a homepage that highlights what they do, and how people can donate or get involved. They can also easily update their content and keep their members up-to-date, without knowing how to code, which is one of the things I love about designing for WordPress!
I definitely encourage you to donate to the cause, or even get yourself (and your best doggie friend) involved by becoming a part of your regional chapter.
