Britepaths Nonprofit Website by Design TLC

For 38 years, Britepaths has been providing help and hope to Northern Virginia residents who are working hard, but struggling to thrive in this expensive region. Similar to a business, Britepaths provides social impact services to improve the wellbeing of the community. Their unique programs equip working individuals and families with the tools they need to withstand a crisis situation and begin a journey toward lasting independence.

New website platform on WordPress

The former Britepaths website was built with Drupal, and integrated complex and robust CRM/Donor Management software called CiviCRM. Drupal was becoming harder to manage, and required an update which would have necessitated an entire rebuild, so the organization made the decision to move to WordPress, which is easier to use and offers more flexibility in functionality. CiviCRM also works with WordPress, but the process of migrating the forms and database from CiviCRM to WordPress was very labor-intensive and time-consuming.

Nonprofit website design that highlights services

We created a fresh and bright design that featured the main focus of Britepaths: financial empowerment and assistance. We customized a photo and created a color palette that came from the existing logo.

The Home Page contains more information, presented with graphics and white space, to allow website visitors to scroll to learn more without being overwhelmed.

Custom Post Types

Britepaths has some compelling stories from clients and volunteers. We created a section on the website where the Britepaths staff can easily add more stories, with consistent content for displaying these stories on the appropriate page of the site.

Similarly, we created custom sections for volunteer opportunities, staff and board content, job opportunities and events.

Ease of use on the back end

As we do with all our website projects, we add complete documentation for editing and updating all aspects of the website. This allows the client to have full control over their website content and process, while also having us on call for more advanced needs. We are so glad Britepaths is happy with their new website!
