My friend Jessica, of JFogg Social Inspirations, asked if I would photograph a special event. The Crisis Center of New Hampshire was launching their new website and they wanted some publicity photos of the event. I always enjoy helping out with good causes and the Crisis Center provides an important service to people in the area who are in difficult and dangerous situations. Since this is a sensitive subject and I wanted to make sure all the information was correct, I asked Angelica Ladd, Development Coordinator at the Crisis Center if she would provide some copy for my blog post.
Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire launches new website
WWW.CCCNH.ORG will better serve NH victim/survivors of domestic and sexual violence
The Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire (CCCNH), Merrimack County’s only crisis center and shelter serving rape & domestic violence victims, launched a new website and unveiled their new official logo on Thursday, January 29th.
The new website, especially, will deliver resources more effectively, and safely, to victim/survivors of domestic & sexual violence. Among the features, CCCNH’s website is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and has an innovative Escape feature. Users of the new website can now escape the CCCNH with just the touch of the escape button and their browser history can never be retraced, protecting victims of abuse from being discovered.
The logo and website were a labor of love for California development company, Hostwel Design & Development, who donated the website and logo, and CCCNH Program Director, Paula Kelley-Wall.
“I’m more proud of this than anything I’ve ever done,” Ronnie Stamp told the group at the unveiling event in a video chat.
The Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire has served victim/survivors of domestic violence, including elder abuse, child abuse, and stalking, in Merrimack County since 1978. CCCNH’s mission is to empower victim/survivors to make positive changes in their lives. They are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week via their Crisis Line (1-866-841-6229) and provide advocacy and support over the phone, in the courtroom, at the hospital and in the community. All services are free and confidential.
CCCNH has a staff of eight and relies on trained volunteers to serve as Crisis Line advocates.
