Friendly Connections

Friendly Connections is an interactive social service for individuals of all ages with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities run by ConnectABILITY.  

Here at Friendly Connections, we are focused on helping our community overcome isolation.  

We aim to help improve the well-being of individuals through socializing and providing entertaining resources.   

We want to connect with individuals across Canada through phone calls, video calls, emailing, messenger chats and good old fashion mail. We mail letters, postcards, colouring sheets, activity sheets, stickers and other fun goodies!

Mission

Our mission is to ensure that everyone has access to positive connections through building an inclusive virtual space for people who have an intellectual and/or developmental disability.

History

Friendly Connections was launched by ConnectABILITY at the end of June 2020. The aim of the program was to combat the increased social isolation and limited access to resources felt by many individuals due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I check the mailbox everyday, I am excited when I see a Friendly Connections letter. I really enjoyed the picture of the pumpkins this summer.
