Non-profit modernizes website for diverse community

SALISBURY, Md. – An Eastern Shore non-profit is kicking off the new year with a fresh look to its website in order to make community resources even more accessible.

This week Shore Up announced its website,, got a complete makeover. Officials say the site has a much more modern look and feel now. The redesign makes it easier for people to get information about the agency’s programs for energy assistance, housing, counseling and tax preparation as well as its thirteen Head Start education centers. Another big improvement is that the site can now be translated into six different languages including Haitian Creole, Spanish, Chinese and French. Officials tell 47 ABC, they made these improvements to reflect our diverse community and keep up with changes to technology.

“We have so many different nationalities, different ethnicities, here in Salisbury. So we want to make sure that we cater to all of those individuals. Our agency actually serves over 15-thousand along Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore so we want to make sure everybody has access to our programs,” says Tameka Norman, the Chief Development and Communications Officer for Shore Up.

Officials tell 47 ABC, the website also has plenty of information about employment opportunities with Shore Up. They say this redesign was made possible through a grant with the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore.
