The West Seattle Timebank
Timebanking is “an exchange of services between neighbors,” a concept which has spread to 350 timebanks across the U.S., including one founded in West Seattle four years ago. West Seattle Timebank now has over 100 members – say, you go wash your neighbors’ windows, and the time you spend doing that goes in the bank so you can use it to get help with something that you want. We are a member of TimebanksUSA and Sound Generations supports us in completing background checks for all members.
We are seeking a more diverse membership and are reaching out to various cultural communities in the area. Working with the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, White Center Community Development Association and Southwest Youth and Family Services, among others, we are beginning to translate materials and hire interpreters for upcoming community meetings. To help families attend, we plan to have food and child care at community gatherings.
