Voices for Independence Center for Independent Living

Voices for Independence (VFI) is part of the network of Centers for Independent Living. These centers act as advocacy and resource referral for people with disabilities.

VFI also acts as a home health agency providing personal care attendant services to people with physical disabilities.

VFI serves Erie County Pennsylvania.

Our first project was revamping VFI’s website with three important functions.

  1. Responsive design for mobile optimization
  2. Universal accessibility for users with disabilities
  3. Improve platform for in-house updates

Unfortunately, their current content management system hadn’t kept up with their needs. The system was server based, and relied on the users to manage annual updates.

Mediastead migrated them to WordPress CMS which offered many superior features. We also managed updates to keep their website current and secure.

We also provided training and help videos to allow their staff to manage content on their own.
