If you’re someone who runs or influences a website, and you care about ending domestic violence and helping victims and survivors, the new widgets powered by domesticshelters.org offer a super easy way to add frequently updated content on domestic violence to your website.
Watch this video to learn more about the widgets and how it takes under 5 minutes to implement a widget on your website. Or visit the widget page at domesticshelters.org. The widgets can be customized to match the color and size specifications of your website, all in just a few clicks.
There is no cost to use or install the widgets, and once installed, the widgets operate on their own and require no further maintenance. There are four widgets to choose from including:
- a library with 100+ DV articles including new articles each week,
- a statistics archive updated every 24 hours,
- a program search tool that includes nearly 3,400 US/Canadian programs, and
- an all-in-one widget combining the three bullets above.
Domestic violence programs have their hands full running day-to-day operations that help people experiencing abuse, yet at the same time many of them would like to make their websites and social media more interesting, easy-to-manage and a community destination. The new widgets address these needs, and at the same time are perfect for bloggers and municipal websites interested in women’s rights, anti-violence and improved social services.
While the widget can be self-installed, questions about them can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Domesticshelters.org is a service of Theresa’s Fund.
About Theresa’s Fund
Theresa’s Fund is an Arizona-based 501(c)3 non-profit charity started in 1992 by Preston V. McMurry, Jr. Originally, and at a time when domestic violence wasn’t yet a headline, Theresa’s Fund focused on changing the landscape of domestic violence services in its home state through grant making, board development and fundraising for Arizona-based organizations like East Valley Child Crisis Center, Sojourner Center, Florence Crittenden, Emerge, UMOM, and West Valley Child Crisis Center. In 2014, it developed the DomesticShelters.org concept as a way to expand its reach to people across the U.S./Canada. DomesticShelters.org is the first online and mobile searchable database of programs and shelters in the U.S./Canada, and a leading source of helpful tools and information for people experiencing and working to end domestic violence.
