The mission of the Cape Ann TimeBank is to build a community among a wide range of residents of Cape Ann and to empower them to contribute to each other’s well-being through giving and receiving services.
A timebank is an alternate economy that is based on time rather than dollars. Every member’s time is valued equally and exchanged on an hour-for-hour basis.
The Cape Ann TimeBank is a network of people who show that we care about each other, rewarding people for helping each other. Once you are a member, for every hour you help another member, you earn a Time Dollar. Then you can use that Time Dollar to have a neighbor help you.
