Koinonia Family Services

The Client

Koinonia Family Services is a non-profit organization dedicated to equipping resource parents for the challenges of caring for foster youth who come from difficult backgrounds. Their mission includes facilitating family reunification whenever possible and providing trauma-informed training and extensive support to their resource parents. Koinonia maintains a highly-relational culture throughout their organization, emphasizing the importance of connections with foster youth, staff members, resource parents, county workers, and birth parents to promote healing and permanency.

The organization offers various services to foster families, including monthly monetary reimbursement, 24-hour support services by master’s level social work staff, continuous specialized training, and support for the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of the youth placed in Koinonia-certified homes. Additionally, Koinonia serves as a reliable advocate and information source for foster youth, families, staff, and counties, striving for better-informed management, governance, and representation at all levels of care.


Koinonia Family Services approached Ace Studios seeking assistance in revitalizing their online presence. Their existing website suffered from outdated design elements, poor search engine optimization (SEO), lack of mobile-friendliness, and non-compliance with ADA accessibility guidelines.

Koinonia recognized the need to enhance their website to effectively communicate their mission, engage with various stakeholders, and streamline the online service inquiry and donation processes.
