The Cape Ann TimeBank operates with the five core values promoted by TimeBanksUSA, a national network of local time banks. Cape Ann TimeBank is an Affiliate of TimeBanksUSA:
Every human being has something to contribute to others
Our society depends on many kinds of work that do not command wages: raising children, preserving families, making neighborhoods safe and vibrant, caring for frail and vulnerable people, making democracy work, etc.
Instead of people with needs being only on the receiving end of services, making transactions 2-way empowers both parties to the relationship.
Healthy communities need social networks based on trust, reciprocity and civic involvement. Our goal is to get to know and give each other help and to resolve conflicts effectively.
We strive to develop and express our acceptance of individual differences and diversity.
