Frequently asked questions


The person in need or someone they trust can act as the Captain (or administrator). This person is responsible for adding the tasks, inviting members, and fielding questions from the network. If you want to set up a support network for someone else, make sure you ask their permission and ensure they are involved in nominating the help needed.

If you are ready to help by setting up a support network and acting as the Captain, you can download the app from the App Store or Google Play.

If you want to help as a member, you must be invited by the Captain to help out. Members receive an SMS invite with a link to the network. For privacy reasons, you cannot search for networks on our website.

The app sends notifications to keep the support network on track. These are sent when new tasks are added, help is still needed close to a due date, when new Chat Topics are added and when new Tips are released. You can control your notifications in the app settings.
