Heartspring launches new website

WICHITA, Kan.—Heartspring introduces a new website, debuting Sept. 1. The new version has a warmer visual appeal while increasing functionality and overall user-friendliness. It features photos of the amazing children served throughout the Heartspring programs while providing information in an attractive, accessible manner.

Heartspring’s new website comes on the heels of a new and greater vision of what Heartspring is and means to this community and the children we serve,” Marketing Director Dusty Buell said. “It’s time to give users a new and better experience and bring our web presence up to the level of excellence that has come to be expected from Heartspring.”

The new website goes in depth on the organization’s life-changing services, including the Residential School, Pediatric Services and Autism Services, with easy-to-access information regarding services offered, enrollment and other valuable information for parents, families and educators. There is also a separate section for current and potential employees and a section for community supporters to learn more about what their support does and what they can do next. The website was built completely in-house and debuts new features to help enhance the user experience including:

  • - an age-based filter for Autism Services’ CARE Clubs
  • - an employer-giving-match search tool
  • - a step-by-step breakdown in the school’s enrollment and admissions process
  • - searchable personal brand profiles for many employees
  • - new success stories and videos of the children served and the people that make it happen
  • - a “Donor Spotlight” page

“When a parent is making the decision to use Heartspring services, we want to make it as easy as possible for them,” Buell said. “The decision to ask for help can be a difficult one at times, so we want to make their search as easy for families as possible. We are here to transform fear and uncertainty to hope and opportunity, and that’s what we want to convey to parents. This website is the first step in the process of making the very best decision for a child with special needs.”

Heartspring is a worldwide center for children with special needs. The Residential School, Pediatric Services and Autism Services aim to help children of all ages succeed by gaining the skills necessary for a more independent lifestyle.
