The concept is simple. Help a neighbor and earn credit for each hour of your service. In exchange, you can spend your time credits on any of the hundreds of different services that other members offer. The Hour Exchange empowers individuals, organizations and businesses to help each other meet their needs cash free through one-to-one exchanges and group projects. Their activities build and strengthen our community.
