Shepherd's Field Children's Village
Custom Web Design
Shepherd's Field Children's Village, run by the non-profit Philip Hayden Foundation, provides a safe haven for at-risk, special needs orphans in China. We helped them create a custom website that better communicates their mission and makes it easier for the public to get involved. We developed the site to integrate seamlessly with their donation services.
"The Philip Hayden Foundation (parent foundation to Shepherd's Field Children's Village) is a nonprofit, and our previous website designs had been completed by short-term volunteers. It was time to focus on our web presence and create a cohesive look and feel to our media offerings. We needed an updated look to our website which was easy for visitors to navigate and for me to update the content, so we turned to Back 40 Design. From the start, this was a collaborative effort. We had an online meeting with the designer, developers, and project managers at Back 40 Design to describe our work at Shepherd’s Field, and from this meeting Back 40 Design created our website. I was impressed by the project management; project milestones were visible and met on time. The staff helped me choose plugins for our website that were effective, easy to use, and cost-effective. With no background in web design, development or content maintenance, training and access to help were crucial. I was impressed with the accessibility and helpfulness of our project manager. I would whole-heartedly recommend Back 40 Design for website design and development. " said Lori Baxter, the Child Sponsorship Coordinator for Shepherd's Field Children's Village.
