Key Modules, Theme, and Distribution Used 
Omega, Views
Why these Modules, Theme, and Distribution were Chosen 

The YWCA of Edmonton wanted a website with a minimalist design and a great user experience from any device. Omega was chosen to drive the responsive design. Views was chosen, well, because it's Views. That's pretty much what makes Drupal so awesome.

Development Company 
Hybrid Forge

Describe the Project (Goals, Requirements, and Outcome) 

The YWCA of Edmonton was rebranding and wanted a new web presence that fit their new image. The project had to consolidate information from 3 separate websites while balancing the business needs with their social mandate. Well structured content types and use of views was paramount to keep the site content organized.

The admin area had to be easy to use for the communications team and guest contributors. We've achieved this in Drupal by using custom content types that guide the content creation process and maintain the integrity of the content on the front end.

Overall the YWCA of Edmonton has renewed its appeal with a new generation of women looking for guidance, inspiration, and mentorship.
