Our website should serve as a hub for the community and our business. It should be a location where people can go to learn about our individuals, their stories, and our mission. It should also give people a place to interact and list community events. The newly designed website would also have to be a place where our business partners could go for information about upcoming holidays and program information. It should serve the needs of our individuals, community members, our current business partners, and perspective business partners. If the new website had a secure location where our employees could log in to find program information about our individuals, their schedules, attendance, and fill out program forms it would also make us more efficient. The website should be easy to navigate for everyone, look professional, clean, and work across every platform.
Picture this, long, thick, orange shag carpet, bell-bottom jeans, and a steaming fondue pot full of cheese. The 70’s were a far-out and groovy time period for some. For individuals with disabilities, it was a time period of uncertainty. Mental institutions were still running rampant and went mostly unchecked. For parents of adults with disabilities they were left with a very difficult decision. After graduating high school what were they to do with their children? Would they send them to an institution or was there a better solution? In 1979, a group of concerned parents got together and formed Options Inc. Options Inc. is dedicated to empowering and supporting adults with disabilities in living and working in the mainstream of community life. From serving nine individuals in a church basement we have grown to a 40,000 square-feet facility that supports over 250 individuals. We help support individuals for life after high school. For some, this means working in the community and for others it means developing and maintaining daily living skills. To sum up the story of the hundreds of individuals who have attended Options Inc. over the years is impossible, but I hope this gives you a little idea of who we are and what we do.
One of the core principles that Options Inc. was founded on was to empower individuals. A redesigned website would empower our individuals in unprecedented ways. Individuals that we support could share their stories with the world through post and video testimonials. Options Inc. also relies heavily on the support we receive from the community. A website redesign could allow individuals that we serve to connect with members of their community in new ways and give them a place to interact.
