Connecting untapped resources with unmet needs

The Five Core Values of Timebanking:

Assets We are all assets! We all have something valuable to give

Re-evaluating Work Some work is valuable beyond price – and that work needs to be recognized and rewarded. Everyone benefits when we work to raise healthy children, strengthen neighborhoods, build strong families, live sustainability, and foster social justice.

Reciprocity Helping works better as a two-way street. When we create a reciprocal system, we honor each other’s value by receiving what they have to offer,

Respect Every human being matters; there are no throw-away people.

Social Networking Our social infrastructure of relationships with one another is as essential as a systems infrastructure of roads, bridges, and utility lines. When people help each other they also reweave communities of support, strength, and trust.
