What is USE?
Born in 1975, USE is community organization, for those who live and work in Reston or Herndon, Virginia. We enable neighbors to help each other through the exchange of Services. Repayment is in kind, by performing services for other USE members. The accounts of members are kept in hours of USE credit.
Reston USE brings together people with various needs and people who can meet those needs. Often lasting friendships have blossomed as a result of these exchanges.
As a neighbor-to-neighbor time-sharing system, USE does not expect a professional plumber or electrician to volunteer services for which they need compensation. Services are limited to those that can be done in a few hours and which would not have a large monetary value if provided commercially. The atmosphere of exchanges is one of small friendly exchanges.
How does USE work?
USE credits are for time only, in increments of an hour. USE members may ask for needed services before they have accumulated the necessary credit hours. The hours can be made up later, although USE does not permit anyone to be too heavily overdrawn.
What USE does not do:
USE is not an employment agency or a business. It does not trade commodities. USE does not assign people to jobs. Each member who arranges a service through USE takes full responsibility for using those members made known by USE.
USE does not attempt to ascertain whether governmental or other authorization permits, special training, bonds or other items are required. This is the sole and exclusive responsibility of the parties engaged in any service transaction for which USE credit is being earned.
