LikeUs Connect Events started with founders Dylan and Alexandra realized that there were not many opportunities for high-functioning adults with disabilities to connect. Dylan has lived his entire life with cognitive disabilities, and he's found that there were no communities tailored to his specific needs or where he could meet and network with people like him. That's where the idea for Like Us Connect started, and the first event was held in person in fall of 2019. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, events are now virtual, which has made these events even more accessible for those who want to attend!
At LikeUs Connect, we believe that every person deserves to find a community of people who can connect on shared experiences. Through our in-person and virtual events, we help people with intellectual and learning disabilities to connect for friendship, dating, and networking. We always emphasize inclusion and safety, and encourage family members and friends to join us for events!
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals of building a larger, more inclusive, more accessible community. 100% of your generous donation will go toward running our events.
