United Counseling Service

What we've done

United Counseling Service is a mental health and developmental center based in Bennington County, Vermont. Since 1958, United Counseling Service has been providing the local southern Vermont community with emergency mental health services, substance abuse and addiction counseling, developmental services, programs for children, and more. We’re honored to have been chosen to rebuild a website for an organization whose work helps people everyday, and to have the opportunity to assist people in finding the help that they need.

One of United Counseling Service’s main priorities with this redesign was to have their new website meet WCAG 2.1 AA Conformance standards. This way, their new website would be accessible to everyone, regardless of ability. They also wanted their new website to have a more professional, modern design as well as improved navigation for a better user experience and search engine optimization (SEO).

Keeping this vision in mind, we built United Counseling Service a new, custom WCAG 2.1 AA Conforming WordPress website. The new website is both fresh and modern, and is easily navigable for clients, potential employees, and other community members. All in all, users now leave the website with a better understanding of United Counseling Service’s mission, programs and services, and how to get help.


Working with Bytes.co to build our new website was great: they were quick to respond to questions, knowledgeable about various web technologies, and ultimately built a fantastic website. We’ve heard nothing but glowing reviews regarding our new site, specifically about how clean looking and intuitive the site is to use. Our new site needed to be ADA accessible, and lucky for us Bytes.co has a strong relationship with Accessible Web. Together they made our new website great for anyone who needs to use it.
