The development of a website for a non-profit organization concerned with domestic violence is described, including the needs assessment, methodology, implementation, finalization, and evaluation. Gateway Battered Women's Services (GBWS), in Aurora, Colorado, provides shelter, advocacy, and counseling for women and children affected by domestic violence. Its goal is the elimination of personal and societal violence against all women and children through education, support services, and promoting social change within the community. GBWS needed a web presence, a database, and an online counseling service to distribute information on domestic violence to potential clients and volunteers and to solicit donations. A questionnaire was used to evaluate the results and to formulate recommendations. The recommendations were implemented where possible
