How does it work?

For every hour that you help meet the needs of another member, you earn a time credit for the exchange.

When you find an offer of interest, your time credit can be redeemed.

If you don't yet have hours to 'spend', that's ok! You can still recieve an offer. You'll just owe the bank and next it will be your turn to make an offer.

Local Exchange News

The mission of the Happy Valley Timebank is to foster community connections through hour-for-hour exchanges of all of our unique gifts.

We recognize that each person has talents to share, and that the overall community is strengthened when neighbors help one another.


Our timebank was established in 2012 with three goals:

  •  Strengthen the fabric of our community.

  •  Serve people and give them a means to serve.

  • Establish new relationships and meet real needs of our community members.

All the Best from hOurworld

"To the average country person, Time Banks sounds a lot like the way their world already works; it’s called being a good neighbor. In farm communities, we all have our networks of neighbors who we can call on for skilled help with harvest trucking, covering chores, or collecting escaped cattle. But what about all the people in our communities we don’t know through farm or church connections? Time Banking can extend the wealth of community connections to include many people and skills that you may not know are right around the corner."
