The Mitchell-Yancey Habitat for Humanity

The Mitchell-Yancey Habitat for Humanity contacted us about designing a striking new mobile-friendly website for their operations in Mitchell and Yancey counties.  They wanted a new, modern appearance that highlighted their programs and their results.  After discussing their needs, we eventually decided upon setting them up with a site they could design and maintain themselves....

Rather than have us do all of the design work and then hand the site off to them, we determined that with some initial training, they could actually design the site themselves using the Page Builder component available for the Joomla CMS system. What makes this so effective is the fact that it is a complete system that doesn't require much more effort that drag and drop, text editing and layout design.  

The IT Partnership provided the necessary webspace hosting at no cost through the generosity of our donors and supporters, then set up an account on our service so the Habitat staff could manage and maintain the site from a LOCAL source.  Everything is under one account, Domain Name management, Web Hosting management, eMail management and much more.  

Once all of the domain name and hosting services were under one roof, we uploaded all necessary items to the hosting space, installed the Joomla CMS component, installed and configured the template, Page Builder component, backup solution and everything else they would need to design and maintain the site plus keep it backed up at all times.  We also put into place a 24/7, 356 day a year monitoring and security system to make certain there were never any problems that we were not aware of if something happened.  

Finally, we then supplied some initial training as well as links to all of the online documentation, support forums and other services for helping with all aspects of the layout, design, upkeep and more.  We are of course always available to assist in any way necessary, answer questions and help make recommendations when asked.  You can see the results for yourself..
