Creating a digital platform for the collective voice for Indigenous Child and Family Services

The Indigenous Child and Family Services Directors approached us to build a website, OurChildrenOurWay.ca, to communicate their purpose, vision, values, goals, and objectives to the world.

Their mission is to provide a collective and expert voice on Indigenous child welfare matters, with a focus on systemic changes to policy, practice, legislation and funding to ensure the best interests of an Indigenous child are being met.

Background

The group wanted to position themselves as the authority on Indigenous child and family services in BC. The site needed to convey that they were experts and a trustworthy solution for community leaders who are struggling to decide how best to provide child and family care for their community.

What we did

The site clearly communicates the organization’s background, goals, and objectives, and provides information and resources for leadership as well as including a “Find Your Agency” feature that allows visitors to connect with the right people to get the help they need.

Using the popular and robust WordPress platform, we made the site easy to administer and maintain by customizing the administration panel to be intuitive and straightforward. Our experience in SEO and analytics fed into the design process to keep the site fast and easy to navigate.

Features:

  • Custom WordPress site, post types, and templates
  • Detailed timeline functionality for Indigenous documents
  • An agency search feature that allows users to search by agency name, nation name, contact name, or location
  • Job board that allows users to submit job opportunities

The results

We created a clean, organized, professional, and functional website that serves the organization’s members, Indigenous communities, government agencies, and more.
