DDA Website Changes

We have recently added responsiveness to our website. What this means is that the layout will change depending on how you are viewing the site. For example, if you are on a smartphone, the site will be a version that is easier to navigate on a small screen. Changes such as this should allow you to access the website and its content from anywhere.

Other changes include integrating our content with Facebook and Twitter so that you can keep informed about upcoming events, job and volunteer opportunities, and blog posts. Yes, you read that right! We are pleased to inform you that our blog page is now LIVE! You can access it by clicking the tab above or by clicking here.
