Our 2018 Pro Bono Project
Specialized Autism Support & Information (SASI) is an important resource for Long Island families affected by autism. The organization is run by parents of children with special needs, and their mission is to enrich the lives of children and families affected by autism. They provide resources and information, along with programs and services to benefit them in gaining independence and confidence.
As part of their outreach efforts, SASI sought to replace their previous outdated website with one that was more intuitive, user-friendly, and easy to manage. They also wanted to improve their online presence to reach more families, and improve the way in which they were tracking members and providing support to them.
Flexible Systems partnered with SASI to create a pro-bono website that is mobile friendly, easy to navigate, and optimized for the most important keywords in the organization’s niche. As part of the project, our Digital Marketing team created a custom membership management system which is hooked into SASI’s MailChimp account. They are now able to accept new members online and easily reach out to them to provide support. They can even invite children to a monthly birthday party for autistic children. Prior to this project, SASI was managing their memberships on an XLS sheet and had to copy/paste contacts into an email to get in touch with them.
SASI can now easily add new events, programs and photos to their website, as well as, efficiently manage members of their online community and send them email updates. They are also able to accept donations that support the amazing work they are doing. To learn more about SASI please visit their website at sasiny.org.
