Vision & Mission

Our vision at the California Northern Counties Time Bank  is a community that values everyone's skills and talents equally and where assets are utilized to ensure everyone's needs are met. We envision an empowering and welcoming community, which is built through strong connections and relationships where all are respected.

To realize this vision we promote the understanding that all work is important and should be valued equally. We help people recognize that they have much to contribute to others and facilitate connections between those who would like to give and those who have a need.  We strengthen people’s ability to meet their own needs by exchanging talents and keeping resources in the community.  We empower individuals and communities by reducing isolation and improving access to services and resources, all while having fun.
