DREAM is not just another organization; it’s a lifeline for hundreds of at-risk youth, providing a range of critical programs from after-school activities to athletics and mentoring. To expand their reach and continue changing lives, DREAM needed a digital platform that could tell their story, involve the community and provide real-time information. That's where Monstrous Media Group stepped in.
More Than Numbers: The Mission Behind DREAM’s Digital Platform
For over 13 years, DREAM has been making a tangible impact in the lives of young people in Omaha, NE, and Springfield, MO. However, numbers alone can’t tell the story of transformation, empowerment and community. The challenge was to create a website that not only provided information but encapsulated the very essence of what DREAM stands for.
Empowering the Next Generation, Digitally
Working closely with DREAM’s team, we focused on bringing to life the vision of Steven Warren, CEO of DREAM, who believes in the power of community to bring about change. Here's what we emphasized:
- Accessibility: With 100% free programs for youth, it was essential that the website itself was easily navigable for both young people and their families.
- Multi-Faceted Programs: Whether it’s after-school activities, mentoring or athletics, each program has its own dedicated section, allowing visitors to dive deep into what interests them.
- Real-Time Updates: Just as DREAM is ever-evolving, so is the website. A dedicated section for real-time updates ensures that the community stays involved and informed.
Safety and Security: The Unsung Heroes
Because DREAM deals with at-risk youth, the importance of a secure digital platform cannot be overstated. We chose to use ExpressionEngine CMS for its superior security features, offering peace of mind to parents, caregivers and the DREAM team.
Transforming Lives, One Click at a Time
Though the website is a new addition to DREAM’s toolbox, its role in driving community involvement and providing essential information to families is unquestionable. It’s more than just a website; it’s an extension of DREAM's ongoing mission to empower youth.
Building the Future, Together
At Monstrous Media Group, we believe that our role doesn't end when a website goes live. We are committed to supporting DREAM in their incredible journey, ensuring that the website evolves along with their expanding programs and community reach.
