Homeis is a Culture Network for Local Foreign-Born Communities

Immigration is both a physical and an emotional upheaval, and Homeis is a new social platform to help people ease the transition between their new home and their place of birth. The platform is designed to connect expats and foreign-born people with others living through a similar experience in their new locality.

Rather than connecting people who come from the same places exclusively, Homeis looks to create foreign-born communities around people living in the same cities post-immigration. The idea is to strengthen the expat communities in those areas and to help those people find a place to express themselves online.

To be sure, Homeis still connects people of similar descent. One of the benefits of the app is its convenience for common activities like sending care packages back and forth from one's ancestral home through the network of users who might be traveling at any time.
