We're for slowing down, children at play.

We're for neighborhood watch. Emergency response. And for just keeping an eye
out for a lost cat.

to call home.

each one of our lives.

- Nextdoor, the social networking app designed around local communities, is launching a new interactive map to let neighbors offer help to one another during the novel coronavirus outbreak.
- Called Help Map, the tool lets you mark yourself as available to help with anything from grocery shopping to child care.
- It will be available in the US starting today and will come to international markets later this week.
- The company also says it’s bringing its Groups feature out of beta globally to let neighbors organize during the crisis.
- Once you add yourself to the Help Map, your name, home location, and profile picture will be displayed to your local community, and you can list the ways in which you’re able to assist your neighbors.
- Members will then have the ability to message you on the platform if they’re in need of help.
- It’s a thoughtful feature for the social network to include, especially since different groups are at wildly different levels of risk from the virus.
