Pods are organized groups of people who reach out to each other for support where and whenever possible. Neighbors pledge to help an individual or a family in need - in any given form - giving a fixed amount of money on a recurring basis (bi-weekly or monthly), providing childcare, running errands, sharing skills, or assisting to access government programs and services.
The goal is to build meaningful, trustworthy and personal relationships between neighbors, understand needs and offer rapid and more suitable responses. It is also about encouraging reciprocity between neighbors.
