Purlew is a town square for the digital age. Our goal is simple; to reinvigorate neighborhoods by empowering engaging neighbors to take ownership and responsibility of their communities. Our platform is the plaza in which neighbors can socialize, hear news, and buy goods. Members are encouraged to explore the community using a local directory of parks, businesses, and services. Through the use of posts, messages, and events, Purlew supplies the tools for members to share a common space to connect, exchange information, and collaborate. Most importantly, Purlew promotes safety and collective efficacy.
