Providing tools that make it easy for our members to exchange goods and services for the purpose of greater well-being in our lives, neighborhoods, and community. We do this through the daily practice of our core values.
OUR CORE VALUES:
ASSETS - Everyone is valued and has something of value to share.
REDEFINING WORK - There are some forms of work that money does not easily pay for, like building strong families, revitalizing neighborhoods, making democracy work, advancing social justice. Time credits were designed to reward, recognize and honor that work.
RECIPROCITY - Helping that works as a two-way Street empowers everyone involved. Paying it forward ensures that, together, we will help each other build the world we all will live in.
COMMUNITY - Helping each other, we reweave communities of support, strength & trust. Community is built by sinking roots, building trust, creating networks. By using timebanking, we can strengthen and support these activities.
RESPECT- Respect underlies freedom of speech, freedom of religion and everything we value. Respect supplies the heart and soul of democracy. We strive to respect where people are in the moment, not where we hope they will be at some future point.
