Mission Statement

The Urban Helper is the only peer-to-peer employment platform that enables its members to offer services in both traditional currency and or time dollars. It removes financial obstacles to hiring help, offers a wide range of needed services, and generates enduring relationships between and among neighbors.

The Urban Helper offers needed services to people across the socioeconomic scale. We connect hirers and helpers in their own neighborhoods, in order to create stronger, more helpful, and better-connected communities.

Our vision is to change the value system surrounding peer-to-peer employment by offering alternatives to traditional currency and creating markets for skills and knowledge sharing. We believe that The Urban Helper can drive work, make better neighbors, and create a fairer and more generous society.
