Discover the many ways people with IDDs are


Friendships, families, jobs, schools, congregations – these connections make us a community. Connectable is a new campaign to enhance connections within the Northeast Florida community with people who have intellectual and developmental differences or IDDs. Join the campaign by making the pledge and discovering how you can connect.

Some in our Community with IDDs

From top athletes to hard-working employees, people with IDDs on the First Coast are diverse individuals with their own interests, values and personalities. Meet some of the people who make up Northeast Florida’s IDD community.






I took the pledge to become Connectable because I don’t have any experience with people with IDDS and I’m always open to the possibilities of new friendships.
