Warrior Community Connect
- Warrior Community Connect
There’s no question about Warrior Community Connect (WCC) living up to its name. The Delaware based nonprofit launched in 2020, despite the challenges of COVID-19. The organization established a brand and infrastructure to support local wounded veterans, their caregivers and their families. Support from AmeriCorps Delaware provided initial support that laid the foundation during the pandemic for WCC to operate independently of government funding.
From paddleboarding and pickleball to fly fishing, golf and cooking classes, WCC provides programs that promote health and wellness to wounded veterans. The organization was looking to showcase their offerings through a newly designed website to build awareness, engagement and partnerships in the local community. WCC worked with D3 on a new site with dynamic imagery of veterans and their loved ones engaging in community events, demonstrating the true mission of the organization, to nurture and strengthen the resilience of the warrior community and empower them to heal and thrive in today’s world.
The website features a customized “Warrior Events” section on the home page with interchangeable imagery and graphics that the Warrior Community Connect team can edit and replace with new events throughout the year. The site’s home page layout provides easy navigation for visitors through visually engaging buttons that link them to Donate, Volunteer, Partner and Register for events.
WCC director Walt Ellenberger and Connie Hurlburt, a wounded veteran caregiver, were very involved with the progress of the website which we always welcome from clients. They wanted to learn about our process, the functionality and how things worked on the back end so they would be able to make updates to annual events and programs on the site moving forward. Warrior Community Connect has a mission D3 was excited to get behind and has been a great partner to work with.
“Overall, the new website is creative, feels good and was exactly what we were trying to accomplish. It truly shares the spirit of our mission.”
