We are so excited to be launching our new, updated website this week. Our former website served us so well as we launched Project 99. It helped a small, grassroots group of individuals who simply wanted to organize a few small events that would help us ensure the loss of our beloved Diego might serve to keep other children and young adults in our community safe. It did so much more than that, helping to unite and inspire like-minded members of our community who collaborated together on a variety of initiatives, from community events like our Lights for Life 5K to educational services, such as our high school workshops for health classes and QPR training. Our efforts and outreach have grown and expanded, continuing to give us hope and encouragement to do even more.
It is in that spirit where we recognized the need to move into new arenas, particularly with regard to social media connections that can expand our community outreach and fundraising efforts and will enable us to provide even more resources. This led us to a decision for the redesign of our website. Our goal was greater mobile accessibility as we concentrated on a higher degree of community outreach via social media. Our new layout will be easier for the generation of users who are more likely to connect to us on mobile devices and tablets. Our hope is that this will not only be a more aesthetically pleasing experience for such users, but also ensure they are able to connect to us and our resources more readily.
With the launch of the new site, you should not only see a complete makeover that is perhaps a little easier to navigate with more and better access to our resources, events, and trainings, but you should also notice more frequent outreach through our various social media channels, including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, as we strive to spread awareness and continue to achieve our mission of bringing suicide and mental health out of the dark. We hope you will continue with us on this journey, and please start by taking a tour of our newly remodeled site. Thank you to all who had a hand in helping with the process!
