Fairfield Connect Network

A network of friends, allies and neighbors... Get involved!

Imagine if every person who spent time with you throughout your day was paid to do so. For many people with a disability, this is the reality.

Community Connections is a network that aims to connect people with and without developmental disabilities through common interests and community activities in the hope that a friendship and bond will develop naturally.

Do you have a special interest or hobby you would be willing to teach to someone with a disability? Do you attend a civic group or religious organization to which you would be willing to invite someone? Would you like to spend a few hours playing games or watching a movie with a person who shares your interests?

You get the idea. People with and without disabilities are often more alike than different and we want to help bridge the gap.
