“Before OurHood, there was nowhere for neighbours to safely connect in real time,” says Bruce Good, co-founder and MD of OurHood. “If, for instance, someone wanted to ask an urgent question about neighbourhood security, load shedding, or advice on a good local plumber, there was no place to do it.

“OurHood has changed that by providing a private website for neighbourhoods,” he adds.

The first version of the app was released in March 2015 following the success of the OurHood website, and has served to increase the user experience for members of OurHood. It is our hope that the app will aid in connecting neighbours to form a safer, stronger communities.
