Starboard Society is a Maryland non-profit organization (501(c)(3) pending) providing support for families struggling with the loss of a loved one, divorce, fire, and other unforeseen events. Their mission is to provide short-term, high-impact assistance to Maryland families in need. Starboard offers help to Maryland families only, and every dollar raised in Maryland stays in Maryland. They operate entirely as a volunteer organization to ensure that their donors and the families they serve receive the maximum value from Starboard Society. They provide direct-to-vendor financial assistance to help with immediate needs and financial education to position families for longer-term stability.
Families that meet the criteria for assistance set by Starboard Society will get the help they need. They will have a resource to provide immediate financial assistance, and access or referrals to other organizations that can help provide long-term support.
Starboard Society came to us when they decided they needed to update their homepage to a cleaner, easy-to-read, look and feel. Ironistic created a custom WordPress design that easily guides the user through their top menu items: About Us, Our Services, Get Involved and Contact Us. We also created 2 new forms. The first form was to help make applying for assistance an easier and smoother process for families in need. The other was for individuals or organizations that want to help Maryland Families Find Their True North by providing a donation. It is also a cross-platform, responsive design that allows users to fully experience the website across desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The Starboard Society website was built with 2 key messages in mind: I Need Assistance and I Want To Help! The responsive website features an abundance of Maryland family stories about how Starboard Society helped them in a time of need.
