Centers for Youth & Families

The Client

The non-profit known as The Centers for Youth and Families is an organization that specializes in providing help for emotionally and behaviorally disturbed youth and providing prevention services to at-risk youth. As the oldest continuously operating non-for-profit in Arkansas, the organization can trace their roots back to 1884 when they were known as the Children’s Aid Society.

The Challenge

Develop a Web site that reflected the mission and vision of the organization, and allowe several content editors without technical editing skills to maintain the Web site content.

The Solution

Softwyre provided a site that gave them a way to post news and announcements using our proprietary content management system (CMS) known as Newswyre. Along with the public facing website, Softwyre created an Intranet for internal office use.
