• Do a Food Crawl - Sample delectable eats and treats at Smorgasburg, Brooklyn's all-food flea market, where 100 vendors set up shop on the Williamsburg waterfront.
Share a basket of Home Frite's succulent, hand-cut truffle fries; indulge in one of Ramen Burger's epic noodle-enveloped beef patties; and refresh your palate with crisp, glistening shaved ice from People's Pops.
A low monthly membership fee for each user will go towards covering the costs of operating the site, and will eventually be used to pay for group outings that will allow people to meet face-to-face in a fun and safe environment.
Special Bridge is the creation of Michael Robbins and Lauren Ellis, who wanted to create a unique experience for people with special needs to find companionship with new people with similar disabilities and developmental delays.
Caregivers spend so much time focusing on educational, medical, and mental health needs that fostering friendships often gets left by the wayside.
Young adults of every ability level have the desire to love and be loved, to make friends, and seek companionship.
This was an idea borne out of Lauren's experience with her sister. Ellis recently talked about what motivated her to start this special website, saying, "I am very familiar with this community, as my sister Jaclyn has been mildly mentally delayed due to chronic health issues her entire life, and watching her struggle to make new friends and find people to relate to with similar conditions has always been a concern."Upon doing some research, Ms.
Ellis quickly learned that there are virtually no resources for autism dating, Down's Syndrome dating, or other sites for people with special needs who want to meet new, like-minded people.
It's goal is to create a supportive environment that allows people to create meaningful friendships and romantic relationships.
