What Pod Families Have to Say

Pod Safety and Security

Shared Quarantine Values

You’ll match with other families that share the same quarantine values as you – things like mask-wearing, social distancing, and proper hygiene habits. This ensures that everyone in your Pod is practicing the same level of precaution as you – even when you’re not together.

Privacy First

Your privacy is our top concern. When you build your profile, you’ll upload a profile photo, description of your family, and what you’re looking for. You get to determine how much and what you want to share.

Secure Chat

When you match with a family, we provide a secure message portal to get to know each other before scheduling a phone call or meet-up. Not feeling 100% comfortable? Feel free to stop and unmatch. We’ll continue suggesting families we think are a good fit!

Socially distanced doesn’t have to mean being alone.
