Home Elephant: An App to Help Neighbors Help Neighbors

by Andrew Price

April 28, 2011

Sure, modern communication is great. With Facebook and Gchat we can stay connected to our friends in Hong Kong and Hamburg, no problem. But how do we forge relationships with the people who actually surround us—our neighbors?

So far, Home Elephant serves 1,039 neighborhoods in 20 countries and counting. We just signed up, but membership in Los Angeles is still small. If the app takes off, however, it could be a great way for people to strengthen their local communities—and may just help you meet some new friends without the potentially awkward experience dropping by unannounced with cookies or whatever.
