HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Waccamaw Regional has taken on a new look. The council of governments launched a new and improved website.

The new site, at www.wrcog.org has a more contemporary design, more content and it's user friendly. The website displays programs and services like, workforce development, grant administration, transportation planning, assistance for the elderly and their caregivers and loans for businesses. These services are open to the public and government agencies in Georgetown, Horry and Williamsburg Counties. "It really is a substantial list of services that we help people with. A lot of those programs, on the surface, people wouldn't necessarily expect to go together," said Sarah Smith, Executive Director for Waccamaw Regional.

The website has been improved since its introduction in 1990 but this is the first overhaul of appearance, organization and content. Not only does Waccamaw Regional have a new online look, they also plan to make other changes to the agency.

The agency introduced a new logo, there are plans to launch an e-newsletter and they plan to add social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Google+. The following alterations are to help make the company more visible to the public. "We've been kind of a well-kept secret, but that doesn't help us serve the communities in our region. We're doing more than ever and technology makes it easier than ever to share what we're doing. We're going to take advantage of that," Smith said.
