Bridging Hearts members connect through two main ways: 1) a private, members-only website (it’s a lot like Facebook) and, 2) through monthly events. The private, online community allows members to comfortably communicate with their peers, and it’s a great way to connect and build acquaintances and friendships and share with people who understand and have similar interests. Bridging Hearts sponsors monthly events at places around the Twin Cities and now Duluth to bring members together to explore interesting and fun activities and topics. Through the members’ site and monthly programs, we inspire all of our members to find ways they can Connect. Belong. Matter.

How is Bridging Hearts different from other online social networks?
At Bridging Hearts, all members have learning disabilities, potential members are personally interviewed, and social opportunities and activities are available so members can meet in person. Bridging Hearts is a social club, not a dating service. We are a private website, with no advertising on the site.
Why do I need to be interviewed in person?
The interview is used as a screening process to ensure people are who they say they are and if they meet the criteria. It is a safety precaution. The interview is also a way to help match potential friends. Currently, all members have been referred; either by parents, teachers, or social workers.
What are expectations for online/offline behavior?
How often are events scheduled?
We have a scheduled Bridging Hearts event at least once per month. In addition, members often plan activities independently through our very popular forum. These are member driven events and independent of the Bridging Hearts organization.
What types of activities will be available?
We offer a variety of events to include many interests. We have had a “Let’s Talk” series where we have discussed issues important to our members, bowling, theme parties, theatre events, sports events, volunteering activities, boat cruises, dances, horseback riding, and a sleigh ride. We publish a yearbook at the conclusion of each year which showcases our events and members.
