IFSI has grown and we wold like to do a couple of things with the website:
1) professionalize the look (we think--although would love feedback if the grassroots feel is more appealing given our mission)
2) add some real time elements like a calendar feature
3) improve navigation
4) add pages: newsletter tab,strategic partners and links tab,immigrant integration navigator program tag
5)our website is used by constituent families as well as volunteers and funders--we want to make it useful for all
we need to provide clear information to a variety of parties so we can get more families in the IFSI programs, develop more funding sources and add volunteers
IMMIGRANT FAMILY SERVICES INSTITUTE strives to address the academic and personal challenges confronting our immigrant children by providing targeted support and enrichment services as a way to maximize their potential in school and beyond. IFSI also advocates for immigrants by reducing barriers to accessing services and works with immigrants most affected by recent changes to immigration legislation including Temporary Protective Status (TPS). IFSI also advocates for immigrants' rights and access to services including health care, education, housing and other social services.
IFSI-USA offers three well attended and growing children's programs. PLUS+ afterschool serves roughly 40 immigrant children with academic tutoring and musical instrument instruction. PLUS+ weekend offers academic tutoring, college prep and musical ensemble instruction. PLUS+ summer offers full day academic and enrichment programming including a middle school STEAM curriculum.
For adults, IFSI offers workshops and services around immigration concerns including alternative paths to citizenship and rights as well as parent workshops.
Jesse is amazing. Very professional and very thorough. He analyzed our website using a number of different metrics and presented in depth recommendations on a variety of changes. He took the information we gave him and the features we are hoping to include in our website and not only gave us a great analysis but a number of options and very actionable steps for each option. He responded promptly and gave frequent updates as the project progressed. A pleasure working with Jesse and a very valuable experience for IFSI.
Working with Immigrant Family services was a very nice experience. They were courteous and prompt in their replies while providing me with everything I needed to complete the task.
