Problem

  • The Family Justice Center of Washington County (FJCWC) provides information and resources on its website for survivors of violence and abuse. Making the website inclusive of the people it serves was essential for its mission, which is why the organization worked with Prometheus to improve its accessibility.

Solution

  • Prometheus paired FJCWC with a developer to integrate key accessibility features into its existing Squarespace website. The talent researched accessibility guidelines and provided an audit of accessibility issues and potential solutions. These issues were then resolved within the site through Javascript code injection and ready-made features provided by Squarespace. Once the site was updated, the talent provided a walk-through and documentation of the changes so that FJCWC could maintain its site for accessibility.
