What did FriendshipWorks need?

Vicky helped FriendshipWorks communicate their work with a content management system (CMS)-based website, so that they can easily manage and update site content on a regular basis.

Why is this project important?

We want our website to be a hub for all of our constituents to find information about us, donate, register to volunteer, and find resources for the elders we serve. Our current website is not everything it could be. We are constrained by the Wordpress theme that we are using, and lack the skills to customize it the way we would like. As such, our site is awkward and can be hard to use, and we are not reaching the public in the way we would like.

This project will save us $16,822, allowing us to cut down on overhead and reallocate it to direct service! The more we save, the more isolated elders in Boston and Brookline can get help and friendship!

What did they have to say?

Vicky and Elie (two for one!) were an absolute pleasure to work with. They know their stuff, they are super (and quickly) responsive, and so very patient with ongoing design and function tweaks and endless questions -- even including screenshot walk-throughs to help clarify information. We are lucky to have found these two for our project, and hope to work with them again in the future! Highly recommended.

Working with Diana and Danielle from FriendshipWorks was a dream! They had all the content and revisions ready to be added to the website and were very responsive throughout the process. Great organization!

About FriendshipWorks

Ending Elder Isolation, Creating Connections

FriendshipWorks' mission is to reduce social isolation, enhance quality of life, and preserve the dignity of older adults in Greater Boston. We accomplish this by recruiting and training volunteers of all ages, faiths, and backgrounds who provide friendship, advocacy, education, assistance, and emotional support.
Fun Fact

Fun Fact

Fun fact: we changed our name from Match Up Interfaith Volunteers to FriendshipWorks in part because people thought we were a romantic matchmaking agency. We pair isolated elders with volunteers for friendship and to help with short term tasks. :)

This is the 1st project posted by FriendshipWorks.
