Founded in 1913, Hillsides is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the overall well-being of at-risk youth and families throughout Los Angeles County. Since inception, Hillside has provideded quality care, advocacy and innovative services that promote safe, permanent environments for children to thrive. In addition to healing, rebuilding trust and restoring hope within children and families through their four core programs: Family Resource Centers, Residential Treatment Services, Hillsides Education Center (HEC), and Youth Moving On (YMO). These services preserve and protect, so that families and children can begin to heal from traumatic experiences.
Hillsides approached the Stauffer team to create three websites to cover the depth and breadth of their unque position and innovative services for at-risk youth and families. Following their dream, our team developed Hillsides, Hillsides Education Center (HEC) and Youth Moving On (YMO). Each unique in its own right, and all equally user friendly in offering quick access to information regarding Hillsides community of programs for children and families. Additionally, as donations are integral to the continued support of Hillsides programs, developing a donation page that was easily accessible was key in the development of the site.
Utilizing Drupal 7, the Stauffer team approached the projects for Hillsides using advanced Drupal concepts to integrate the three websites into one domain access. Our development team utilized key elements such as mobile responsive design and the Drupal Domain Access Module to allow administrators to share users content and configurations across sites. This Drupal Domain Access Module provides tools for running a group of affiliated sites from one Drupal installation and a single shared database. Additionally, the customized Hillsides donation page partnered with PayPal allows for quick and easy donations to the important community programs offered by Hillsides Educational Center.
