New & Improved: Virginia Interfaith Center

Based in Richmond, Virginia, the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy (VIC) is Virginia’s oldest faith-based advocacy group. They are the parent organization of Virginia Consumer Voices, whose website we recently revamped. The folks at VIC gave us a call when they were ready to overhaul their own website and we got to work.

Virginia Interfaith CenterThe existing site was developed on the DotNetNuke platform which VIC wanted to get away from. After reviewing their needs we recommended WordPress and analyzed their analytical data to provide guidance for improved navigation and design. VIC decided to go with a more streamlined design, eliminating pages their visitors weren’t using and adding content to more popular areas.

We’re so excited by our new website layout and design. Scott was amazingly patient and helpful in steering us along toward a completely new website. Our site is not only navigable for our members and search engine optimized, but it is now far easier to update and maintain (a huge relief). Whenever we had yet another question or another idea to add to the mix, United Networks handled our needs in a timely and professional manner.- Robin Gahan - Director of Programs, Virginia Interfaith Center

The final design is responsive, bright and colorful, search engine optimized, and highly visual. Calls to action are outlined more clearly, the user experience has been optimized and we incorporated and customized the ShiftNav mobile menu for a great mobile navigation experience.

A Responsive Refresh for Virginia Consumer Voices

It’s been just over two years since we first launched the website for Virginia Consumer Voices (VCV). Since then they’ve added a ton of content to their website including projects we worked with them on like an Affordable Care Act timeline and an embeddable medicaid counter, and have added thousands of followers on social media. This brought a lot more traffic to their site and over time it was clear that their audience was diversifying and using different types of devices to access their content.

It was time for a responsive design. We worked with VCV to create a fresh, responsive parallax theme for their WordPress site that works across the myriad device types that their visitors utilize. Now anyone can access their content easily, any time and from any device.

As a leading non-profit on health reform it is important that we are able to effectively communicate content with our users. United Networks was able to balance our organizational needs and our users’ needs while considering the current landscape of website design. We are very pleased with how sleek, accessible and innovative our new site is.- Allie Atkeson - Community Outreach, Virginia Consumer Voices

With their refreshed website, Virginia Consumer Voices is ready to share their content with a larger audience than ever. They kept all of their existing content, had no down-time and didn’t have to learn how to use a new platform.
