DeKalb, IL – Web Design, Graphic Design

Site Launch date: January, 2010 – on-going updates

This web site is the flagship information vehicle for the Ben Gordon Center (BGC).  BGC serves the DeKalb/ / Sycamore area and has provided mental health counseling and substance abuse treatment services since 1968. Since that time, they have expanded to provide services at four sites, in addition to the main site on Health Services Drive in DeKalb.  Nearly 40 counselors and therapists, many with licenses and certifications in their areas of specialization, provide a variety of services in a number of clinical specialties for women, children, adolescents, couples, and families.  UPDATE:  As of March, 2012, the Ben Gordon Center will be making most of the changes and additions to their web site.  In order to do this, we re-created the site in a Content Management System, then trained Michelle LaPage, the BGC’s Development Director, in its operation.  Within a day she was able to add content to several of the pages, including an on-site video.
