hOurworld®️ is an International Network of Time Banks


an international network
of neighbors helping neighbors


• 31,273 members • 437 communities • 3,492,449 hours service received!

How it Works!

Members share their talents and services, record their hours, then 'spend' them later on services others provide. Everyone's hours are equal. This is not barter. Members provide friendly neighborly favors. Together we are strengthening the fabric of local communities.
