Resource Sharing Project
Custom brochure website and resource directory for Resource Sharing Project, an advocacy organization that focuses on assisting sexual assault survivors, advocates, coalition staff, and administrators across the United States.

Special care was taken to maximize performance, accessibility, and to avoid anything that may trigger a post traumatic response from survivors.

Their flagship website offers articles across a wide variety of topics, as well as a full-featured consultant directory, sponsored industry reports, public events, a robust ad placement management system, and more. Thousands of pieces of legacy content had to be carefully migrated into WordPress from the previous website, ensuring a seamless transition to the new content management system.

New Website FAQs
If you have specific WordPress plugins that you need or want to use on your website but that are not accessible, yes, we can typically resolve the accessibility issues in those plugins by building another plugin to “patch” them. Some WordPress plugins have such a large number of accessibility issues that we may suggest an alternative or suggest that we build something from scratch.
Website projects typically take a minimum of 5 weeks and can take up to 16 weeks or more for very large projects. Generally, the amount of time a project will take is dependent upon the size of the website, if there is any complex functionality to build, and how quickly the client is able to respond to questions or provide us with needed content.
If your need is urgent, check with us to see if a rush option is available.
Yes, we do occasionally submit responses to RFPs for new website projects depending upon the scope of the project and timeline. If your agency or organization has an RFP that you would like us to review and respond to, please email it to sales [at] equalizedigital.com. Please note, we do have a strong preference toward responding to RFPs that list a budget.
For enterprise websites with high traffic or complex needs, we recommend WordPress VIP hosting. As a WordPress VIP Agency Partner, we can advise you on if this is the best hosting platform for your needs and connect you personally with a WordPress VIP representative to learn more.
