The power of community in your hands.

First Circles transforms any group of people into a smart community. It is a versatile mobile platform that makes it easier for people to organize around and support a common person(s) or purpose. First Circles is especially suited to those with special needs and their families. For example, if you have a loved one with disability or an aging parent, First Circles will help you create a network of support to call upon when needed.

Everyone needs help from time to time. As such, First Circles is perfect for friends helping friends with everyday tasks such as child, home or pet care. Within teams and affinity groups, First Circles promotes peer-to-peer collaboration, mentoring and mutual support. Community organizations and non-profits can employ First Circles to strengthen engagement, orchestrate volunteer activities, organize resources and conduct outreach initiatives.

First Circles is more than a mobile messaging platform.  It creates a unique, on-demand network ready to support any person, need or purpose. A central feature of the app is the ability for members within a circle to request help and for others within the circle to fulfill those requests.  A help request dashboard provides insights about who needs help, when and where. Messages and reminders can be sent to a specific member or everyone in the circle. For example, these prompts can instigate member activity or promote community well being. Members can also post their locations to the circle. Future releases will include algorithms to match support to individual need, enhanced analytics and optional real-time location tracking.

Anyone with a First Circles account can create a circle to support a person, need or common purpose. This person serves as the circle admin and invites trusted family, friends, colleagues and service providers to join the circle. Circles can have more than one admin. Circles can also have a named beneficiary if the circle is established primarily to support that one particular member.

The possible uses are limitless. Put the power of community in your hands.
