Purlew is a hyper-local cooperative community that brings the neighbor back into neighborhood. Today's social tools foster superficial relationships and reward the collecting of friends rather than the value of the relationship. Purlew aims to bring back the community aspect of neighborhoods and foster tighter relationships between people. We believe this will create stronger safer neighborhoods, greater participation in the community, and meaningful personal relationships between neighbors.
Members are able to create events, share information, and read local news. We also believe that there is more to a neighborhood than its neighbors. The greater community as a whole is dependent on the activity of the residents that live there. Businesses, government, and community services are available which are often overlooked. We offer a way in which members can learn about new business openings, find that place that they never knew existed, and interact with the owners.
