Children, youth and families department shares redesigned website


The Delaware Department of Services for Children, Youth and Their Families is sharing the agency’s newly redesigned website.

Launched July 29, the website redesign of was done in coordination with the department’s rebranding over the last year, which includes a new, updated logo. Throughout this process, DSCYF worked with the Department of State’s Government Information Center, an internal consultancy for Delaware state agencies that specializes in website practices, design and digital communications.

DSCYF’s redesigned website melds a compassionate, welcoming design with streamlined navigation.

“We are thrilled to share DSCYF’s newly redesigned website, which has been a focal point of our agency’s rebranding efforts. The look of our website embodies our mission to engage families and communities to promote the safety and well-being of children through prevention, intervention, treatment and rehabilitative services, as well as provides a user-friendly experience,” said Josette Manning, secretary of the Department of Services for Children, Youth and Their Families, also known as the Delaware Children’s Department. “I appreciate the work of our department as well as the Government Information Center to make this redesign a reality. Technology unlocks the potential for innovation and collaboration, and we are excited for other government agencies and the public to utilize and share our redesigned web resources.”

DSCYF’s color scheme, characterized by blue and green hues, is showcased throughout the website and logo. It represents the department’s mission, vision and values by evoking a sense of compassion, strength and resilience. The website is also mobile-device friendly and makes strides in accessibility for all viewers to ensure that every citizen has a first-rate digital experience when visiting. The public can view a variety of resources on the website including information on trauma, behavioral health services, juvenile justice, and foster care and adoption.
