Your safe place to Learn, Interact, Connect, and have fun

About Us

Our Mission: Hello, it’s me strives to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness in people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Who we are

Hello, It’s Me provides a safe place for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) to learn, interact, connect, and have fun through our products and community.

Learn through our interactive stories that are based on real-life scenarios. These stories include interactive learning moments that teach lifelong skills.

Interact with one of our wellness coaches who will listen and guide you through anything you may be going through.

Connect with others from our community through our relationship section no matter what type of connection you are looking for.

Have fun by playing games with others in our community or attending one of our live events.

Our Purpose

During COVID, people became isolated from their friends and it disrupted their normal routines. This was particularly hard for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Hello, It’s Me is for anyone who would like to make a friend, meet new people, talk about shared interests, and form relationships. Traditional dating apps may not be safe for some folks with IDD. Hello, It’s Me allows folks with IDD to practice skills through the story-based learning opportunities while practicing those skills through our dating/friendship section.
