Our members list skills or services they want to exchange without money changing hands. You get the things you need — house repair, yard work, child care, dog walking, haircuts, piano lessons, etc — directly from other members. And time is the currency. So for every hour you give, the time is credited to your online account to be redeemed for an hour of another member’s skill or service.

Do you have some spare time on your hands? Do you have some small jobs that need doing? Do you want to get involved, keep busy, and help others? The new West Seattle Timebank could be just what you’re looking for.

By joining, you not only widen your circle, you help build a network of neighbors who are ready to take care of each other. Bottom line, it’s good to know you’re not alone, and there are people who will help you … and to whom you can return the favor.
