Welcome to the Neighbor Network of Northern Nevada (N4)!
We're happy you are here.
N4 believes that by connecting neighbors with community trade services, as well as gratifying volunteer opportunities, better lives are achieved for people and their families.
N4 consists of four innovative programs:
A time exchange where members earn hours by exchanging services with one another
A volunteer program
An Information and referral to existing community resources
Fully inclusive social activities.
N4 blends important core values of time banking and the village concept in order to build social capital and increase community engagement.
A service exchange or time bank is a network of individual, organizational and business 'members' that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met. A service exchange is NOT a barter network, since nothing is 'exchanged'. One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so.
