About 

With the shelter-in-place orders, kids are unable to see their friends and engage in extracurricular activities, leaving them feeling disconnected and bored.  Meanwhile, many parents are already under significant financial and psychological stress, and with their kids starting summer vacation, have one more thing to worry about. 

 

We created Connect-In-Place to give kids a social and fun outlet, while mitigating one potential stress from parents’ lives
