Toucan is on a mission to give everybody somebody to talk to! Toucan is a peer support platform for iPhones that fills the gap in existing support options by pairing people, 1-on-1 and anonymously, for conversations called Huddles centered around a shared topic.
At Toucan we are harnessing peer support to give people an affordable and accessible way to speak and listen to others who are going through something similar. Whether it is becoming a new parent, career stressors, or a global pandemic, life throws a lot at us; with Toucan we can support each other and not have to go it alone.
Toucan is a participant in the Anthem Digital Incubator (ADI).

What People Are Saying
Such a thoughtful app to facilitate 1-1 talk time on subjects that I often feel a need to vent about, but don’t want to burden my loved ones, or feel it reaches the level of professional therapy, and often just wishing there was someone who can talk/listen about similar issues I’m facing without having to build a formal relationship or friendship. This is new. It took a few minutes to get comfortable in my first huddle, but I can see this really offering a new strategy to cope with stressors in my life. Thank you Toucan team for seeing this need and finding a thoughtful way to create a platform for users.User review in App Store
Easy to use and easy to schedule. Getting the opportunity to share what is on my mind has been so helpful. Having The chance to say things out loud has helped me process my thoughts. I like having the topics to stay focused. I also appreciate that the listener knows ahead of time what to expect. This time at home has been difficult and I’m grateful to have this app!User review in App Store
