HUG connects people with disabilities to social activities and events in the community

“HelpUsGather.org was created to connect people with special needs and their families to social events and activities in the community. Feeling disconnected or isolated has a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. HUG’s mission is to help create a more inclusive world for people of all abilities.”

Robin Lally, Founder

“As a child and now a young adult, I struggled with social interaction. Even now it is so nice to connect with others that share the same challenges. The website is an amazing opportunity for people of all ages with disabilities to help people with social skills and to connect with one another.”

Rachel BarcellonaMiss Southeast International 2017, Board Member CARD-USF, Ambassador Unicorn Children’s Foundation

"This website is a necessity because it allows people with disabilities or the parent of a person with a disability to easily find events in their neighborhood that can bring them together. They have a variety of choices for all ages and I truly think that this website if a positive step in uniting the disability community.”

Katherine MagnoliMiss Wheelchair Florida 2017, Author and Radio Host

“We are so excited to have Help Us Gather, website to share our programs and help immensely in providing information to group homes, Adult Day Training programs, parents, companions and others who work with or love the developmentally disabled and are seeking new opportunities to involve the ones they serve in wholesome activities.”

Horton TownesDirector St. Paul Handicapable Ministry

"Having autism can make social situations harder for me. By finding groups and social activities created for people with disabilities, I was able to feel comfortable enough to make a really good friend. We have a great time doing things together!”
