"Once upon a time" we lived for decades or generations in neighborhoods and villages. Everyone knew one another; knew their gifts and their needs, It was natural to share and to give help.

     For most of us that is a distant memory, as technology and the economy have split us apart. We can use technology to help change that. Using a bulletin board on the internet and a "Pay it Forward" approach, people can connnect to share their time, exchanging needs and offers.

     Our TimeBank has three main goals:

  • Strengthen our communities and help meet people's real needs.
  • Give people a means to help one another, and value their giving.
  • Build trust and establish new relationships.

     We are a community network of neighbors helping neighbors. Members share their talents and services; the time they spend is valued, and recorded in  their TimeBank accounts Later folks "spend" those Hours on services they want. Everyone's hours are equal. This is not barter. These are friendly, neighborly favors. Together we are building a local community network based on relationships and time.
