The Children's Assessment Center of Houston Releases New Mobile Tendenci Website

The Children's Assessment Center of Houston launches new Website as Part of Major Expansion of Services


HOUSTON, October 5, 2016
 –Tendenci (https://www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform, is pleased to release a newly-designed, mobile-responsive website for The Children's Assessment Center of Houston, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of child sexual abuse and the healing of abuse victims. The website, https://www.cachouston.org/, provides information about the many services offered by CAC Houston, how to recognize and report child abuse, and information on ways to support their ongoing efforts to help Houston's children.

From the CAC Houston website:

The Children's Assessment Center (CAC) provides a safe haven to sexually abused children and their families - a place where they can receive the kind of care and treatment they so richly deserve.

We employ an extraordinarily effective multidisciplinary team approach in the prevention, assessment, investigation, referral for prosecution and treatment of child sexual abuse. Our goal is to promote the complete healing of child victims of sexual abuse and their families.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution to give organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence. Working directly in the browser with a user-friendly interface, the caring staff at CAC Houston can update the content, images, documents, forms and site layout as they continue to offer new services, launch expanded programs and pursue fund-raising efforts.

Mobile-responsive design was a driving factor for making changes to the layout as well as ugrading to the latest version of the Tendenci software. The Tendenci upgrade includes many new software features in addition to the stability and security of the upgraded infrastructure.

Focusing on the Capital Campaign was a central part of this project as the Children's Assessment Center works to complete a large, new facility to expand their community training programs for identification, reporting and prevention of child abuse. Reaching donors is an ongoing project for the development team as they seek to fund this campaign as well as support the wide breadth of services available to Houston-area children. The new website employs an engaging, mobile-friendly interface that explains the multitude of ways these donations make a difference, in addition to providing an immediate opportunity to donate online.

The modern responsive design combined with Tendenci's built-in SEO features boosts search engine placement, making it easier for those needing these services or wanting to support the organization to reach the CAC of Houston

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for organizations around the world, including the DePelchin's Children Center (www.depelchin.org), the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (www.dbsahouston.org), and Main Street Ministries (www.msministries.org).

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston provides free and confidential support groups for individuals living with, or family and friends affected by, depression and bipolar disorders. Our support groups are also offered to family members, caregivers and friends who are trying to understand these two difficult mental disorders as they try to assist loved ones.

One of the main areas of focus for DBSA Houston is to remove the stigma associated with depression and bipolar disorder and encourage those who are suffering to come forward, without embarrassment or shame, and find the support they need to live a fulfilling life.

DBSA Houston started offering support to individuals in 1979, a grassroots effort by their founder Gary L. Levering who recognized a need to offer help to those suffering from "mood disorders". The Houston group officially joined the national DBSA organization in 1989.

The flexible Content Management System included with the Tendenci platform allows DBSA Houston to easily add new support groups as they evolve and provide up-to-the-minute notification of group changes for their participants. With quick and easy inhouse management of site content, DBSA Houston is able to promote upcoming events, highlight recent news, revise page content and post announcements using a simple, non-technical inteface.

We are proud to work with an organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of many Houstonians and their families and friends.

In response to growing international demand, Tendenci is in the process of adapting Tendenci® as the Open Source software to the linguistic, cultural and technical requirements of users around the world.

The open source development community is invited to help translate the Tendenci open source software platform at https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/tendenci/

Once completed, a website administrator will be able to select a language to automatically translate all user-facing and backend functions of the website to that language.

"We love that Tendenci software is being embraced by organizations around the world and we are taking steps to accelerate international adoption," said Tendenci CEO Ed Schipul.

"Tendenci open source software is a valuable tool that can help organizations everywhere connect with their communities and achieve amazing things. Recognizing that more than half of the world's online population doesn't speak English, we strive to ensure language is not an obstacle."

Tendenci - The Open Source Association Management Software, already offers integration of the Stripe Online Payment System, which makes it possible for Tendenci websites to accept payments in a broad range of international currencies.

Houston Public Library Foundation Selects Tendenci® CMS Platform to Power New Website

Showcases support for the Houston Public Library through advocacy, fundraising

Tendenci Powers HPLF Nonprofit WebsiteHOUSTON, January 29, 2013 – The Houston Public Library Foundation (HPLF) has launched a dynamic website powered by Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the open source Content Management System for nonprofit organizations (NPOs), which makes it easier than ever for Houstonians to support the Houston Public Library. The new website, www.houstonlibraryfoundation.org, was designed by Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and software development company based in Houston.

HPLF is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on increasing the Houston community’s awareness of the vital role our Houston Public Library plays in its quality of life. Featuring large, colorful photographs that depict how HPLF supports the Houston Public Library through advocacy and fundraising, the new website uses Tendenci’s broad range of capabilities to promote upcoming events and sponsorship opportunities, recruit volunteers and encourage online donations. The organization also uses Tendenci’s integrated digital media management package to organize, collect and share photos of HPLF’s activities.

“Previously, our Web presence consisted of a single page on the Houston Public Library website, which didn’t provide the platform we needed to engage the community, encourage donations and showcase how we use funds to advance the Library’s mission,” said Maya Houston, executive director of HPLF. “The team at Schipul did a great job of visually capturing and presenting what the foundation is all about and Tendenci CMS makes it easy to add and edit content to keep the site fresh and lively.”

While the City of Houston supports the Library's basic expenses, such as salaries and materials, the Houston Public Library Foundation contributes significant funding for additional books and materials, programming, critical staff development and training, marketing and communications materials and minor refurbishment projects. Without the private funds raised by HPLF, many of the free programs the community relies upon, such as Summer Reading and resume writing classes, would not be possible.

Schipul has released Tendenci CMS as an open source product to give NPOs such as Houston Public Library Foundation greater control over their online presence. The Tendenci site automatically recognizes and accommodates mobile and tablet users by auto-resizing and formatting to the width and height of any device. Tendenci also allows administrators to manage online calendar events and registration for these events including reporting and e-mail notifications. It also features out-of-the-box search engine optimization and Web analytics integration to help maximize and track online visibility.

Tendenci CMS has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for nonprofit organizations and associations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and Komen Houston (www.komen-houston.org).
