All individuals have unique personalities and interests. Those with special needs are no different. Friendi is a mobile app that focuses on the qualities that make individuals with special needs truly special, and awesome, and amazing. Friendi is a super tool made for the superhero families that love and support all individuals with special needs, not just some.
· Connects families of individuals with special needs to each other based on the unique and shared interests of their loved one such as video games, parks, trampolines and/or hundreds of other interests.
· Exposes parents to service providers that cater to the needs and interests of their loved one. Friendi wants to make communicating with local service providers as comfortable and easy as chatting with a friend (through an instant messenger). View service details, promotions, photos, location, news updates, hours of operation and much more!
· Empower families to exchange ideas and questions. When people connect, amazing things happen. Friendi believes that technology should serve the networking needs of all individuals, not just the popular majority. Create and share posts and pictures, comment on others posts, and start conversations within minutes.
· Unites families through events and causes. Individually we are weak, but together we are strong. We open sourced our events platform so that everyone can create, promote and attend events, not just big businesses that require equally large fees.
Funding: Friendi is funded by the hundreds of service providers who show their support for individuals with special needs and their families. We could not operate without their membership and support. In exchange for their commitment, we grant them a Friendi certificate of recognition.
