Our mission is to make the internet more inclusive for everyone.
youBelong was started by two brothers, John and Christian Ciocca. As the first social app for people with differing abilities, our focus was on accessibility and the safety of users. People from around the world use youBelong to connect with their friends.
We're building a suite of services for people with differing abilities. To start, youBelong Voice, an alternative augmentative communication (AAC) app with advanced text-to-speech synthesis powered by Microsoft. We're also working on purple - mobile banking for everyone, designed for people with disabilities. We envision a future where everyone, regardless of disability, can participate fully in the financial system.
