Time Banking in Long Beach

The Long Beach Time Exchange is a “time banking” community, where members use an currency called time credits to exchange skills and services.

Members earn one time credit for each hour that they help others, and spend one time credit for each hour that they receive a favor, service, or lesson from another.

The services exchanged through the Long Beach Time Exchange are core functions for a healthy society— childcare, transportation, eldercare, household repairs, homework help, Spanish and ESL classes, cooking, respite care, office assistance, tutoring, yard work, small business development, companionship, housecleaning and anything else that our members decide to offer!

We use an online software called hOurworld to connect to other members, as well as a mobile app called SevaX which hosts several interest groups.

The Long Beach Time Exchange is fiscally sponsored by Community Partners, a 501(c)3 organization, and donations are tax-deductible.
