The Arc of Ventura County
The Arc of Ventura County is a nonprofit corporation that was established in Santa Paula in 1954 by a group of parents and teachers who knew their children deserved a full life. Nearly 70 years have passed since that small group made their commitment and dreams a reality: to promote and protect the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
The website caters to families and individuals who need help with services, businesses who want to help, and people looking for the thrift store so usability and accessibility were of utmost importance. With sitewide responsiveness (including Youtube embeds and Google Maps) and Spanish translation (with custom phrases) the site can be read and viewed by various audiences on different types of devices. Other features include GiveSmart integration, for seamless online fundraising and ADA compliance which is essential.
