HourDollars

Hour Dollars is a service exchange program for residents of the Twin Cities and surrounding suburbs. It functions under the umbrella of the national organization, Time Banks. The primary purpose of Hour Dollars is to provide a way for neighbors to easily exchange time and services. When neighbors exchange services, they build strong ties within the community and everyone benefits.

Orientations are held frequently. Once you’ve completed the orientation, you’ll receive a directory of members and services. You’ll also receive 3 hours in your account to start you on your way.

 

Philosophy

Mission and Goals

The mission of Hour Dollars is to strengthen our community by providing members the means to meet each other, share their skills, and solve problems cooperatively. It is also our intention to value every member’s time equally and be accessible to all interested members of our community.

Our program is founded on these principles and goals:

  • Every person has something to give, and everyone can benefit from the involvement of others. Hour Dollars equally values every hour and helps build self-esteem.
  • Many people have needs that can’t be met with money or aren’t affordable. Hour Dollars increases spending power.
  • People can ask for what they need knowing they have used their skills to earn their hours.
  • Neighbors learn that trusting each other and being trustworthy brings short-term and long-term rewards. Hour Dollars creates an extended family and reduces fear and crime.
  • Community members become co-producers of the products and services they need and of the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Hour Dollars cultivates the village to raise the child.
  • Hour Dollars introduces neighbors of varying ages, cultures, abilities and income levels. Hour Dollars helps uncover the advantages of a diverse neighborhood.

Our members are required to sign and abide by the Hour Dollars Code of Ethics. As an Hour Dollars participant, you agree to:

  • Treat all participants with respect and as you would like to be treated.
