“When the world gives you lemons make lemonade.”  Out of the ashes of what used to be one of the premiere cities in the country (Detroit), a movement has been born in service.  When the problems of the world are placed so directly into your line of sight it is hard to turn a blind eye, with poverty hitting all time highs in Detroit and the city falling to pieces people opened their eyes and their hearts to begin looking for ways to help. One man decided if all of these community organizations and their volunteers,  whose hearts have been touched,  joined forces together they could change the city, and possibly the world. This idea is being spread across the country and is increasing the efficiency of volunteer networks and leading to collaborative efforts from many community organizations.

For those of you who cannot turn a blind eye to the shortcomings of the world today there is a new social network just for you. is a place to connect with other service workers around the country.

What is is a free online community of individuals and organizations working together to create healthy communities through healthy relationships. Building on the concepts of social networking, provides people, organizations, governments and businesses with a community-friendly network to care, connect, communicate, cooperate, engage in commerce and celebrate their successes, individually and collectively.

The beta site was launched in November 2008. The programming team is now introducing new features to the website weekly. is open to all individuals, schools, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, organizations, businesses and governmental agencies that desire to help make their communities better places to live, learn, work and play.

What is “Community 2.0”? is more than just a social network. Peoplemovers is a global network of organizations that utilize “Community 2.0” technology to engage and grow their individual “communities” of employees, members, customers, donors and volunteers while being strategically connected to other organizations locally, regionally, nationally and globally.   Peoplemovers Community 2.0 allows each organization to have their own dynamic “community” connected to their primary website.  Our platform is free of charge to businesses, governments and organizations of all types.

We believe Community 2.0 is the next major “paradigm shift” in how to build strong businesses, non-profit organizations, associations, houses of worship, cities, states and countries as it helps these entities grow more effectively by building RELATIONSHIPS.  Relationships are the most powerful way to sell or grow anything as they can get people passionately talking about what you do.  Community 2.0 facilitates this process by providing a state-of-the-art platform for each member of your community or organization to connect and share with each other and then “spread the word” to their family, friends and neighbors.

Who should join? is open to all individuals, schools, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, organizations, businesses and governmental agencies that desire to help make their organizations and communities better places to live, learn, work and play for all.

People and organizations that are committed to give their best should experience profound growth as they interact and build relationships with others in this community because the people and organizations connected here tend to be the most influential in their communities.   These are the “Peoplemovers” who give and work to make their organizations, communities and the lives of others better.   They have the energy and network of relationships that can be the most powerful in getting others to investigate the products, services, causes and leaders that can make life better.   Build a relationship with these “Peoplemovers” by supporting them in what they care about most – building healthy communities – and you will have a network of friends that can quickly propel you and your organization to new heights of impact and success!

Who is Peoplemovers?

Peoplemovers – based in Detroit, Michigan – is an internet technology company that specializes in creating online community networks for non-profit and for-profit organizations.   These networks allow organizations to grow their relationships with customers, volunteers, residents, students, suppliers, donors and supporters so they can grow and, in the process, create healthy communities.

Helping people and communities is part of our “DNA” as the company was originally founded in 2003 by Keith Zendler as a small grassroots community outreach program in the inner-city of Detroit.   Our simple concepts for building relationships gradually evolved into a broad-based scope of networking, training, promotion, recognition and educational programs for communities.

In 2008, the decision was made to separate the internet technology component of the organization into a “for profit” entity to make growth and paying the bills simpler with a sizable portion of the proceeds to be reinvested into participating organizations and communities through The Peoplemovers Foundation, a private foundation formed to support relationship-based community development.
