Mid-Shore Council on Family ViolenceWebsite Development

Nonprofit Website Design for Victims of Domestic Violence

As the central point of access for assistance on domestic violence within the counties of Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, and Talbot on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the mission of Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence is to create healthy opportunities to break the cycle of domestic violence through intervention and prevention by providing shelter, counseling, services, and advocacy for victims and abusers; and by changing society’s attitudes and systems which permit and promote such violence against women, men and families.

MSCFV came to us with the need to create a new website that would make it safe and secure for victims of domestic violence to get the help they desperately need.

Custom Website Functionality for Quickly Exiting the Site

In addition to setting up MSCFV’s new website with our custom administrator dashboard, we also came up with a way for users to be able to quickly exit the MSCFV website for emergency purposes. This quick-exit process can be performed by clicking on “Quick Exit” button fixed to the top of each page or by pressing CTRL + E on a keyboard. The browser then immediately redirects to a generic weather search page.

Client- and user-focused website design

For this project, it was important that the website met both the needs of the user and the client. For the user, it was critical that the website was safe and provided information quickly and in an organized way. For the client, it was important that information could be updated quickly and easily.

We’re excited to see the impact that MSCFV will continue to have in the community with their new website.

Important COVID-19 Announcement

At Mullin/Ashley, we’re very concerned about the well-being of our customers, employees, business partners and communities currently battling to control the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) threat.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that effective Monday, March 23, 2020, all non-essential businesses in the state must close their offices.  A follow-up pronouncement on March 30 instituted further “stay-at-home” orders for Maryland residents.

We are complying with these mandates.  In fact, in anticipation of the Governor’s announcements, we had already taken steps to reduce our social footprint by setting up all Mullin/Ashley employees to work from home, with no interruption in the delivery of services.

In addition, travel activities by our staff have been severely curtailed since early March.

By taking these steps, we’re committed to continuing to provide our customers with the services they need, even as we work to reduce our social footprint.

As of July, certain workplace restrictions have been lifted but social distancing mandates continue in force.  We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will continue to take all necessary steps to minimize the risks from the COVID-19 virus.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work collectively to control the Coronavirus threat.
