Hour Exchange Portland

http://www.hourexchangeportland.org

How does Hour Exchange work? Simple. For every hour you help a neighbor in need you earn a time credit you can spend having any member provide you with a service you need. Everyone’s time is equal no matter what the service. And there are hundreds of services available from health care to weatherization or tickets to shows. Exchanging hour services is about empowering individuals, organizations and businesses to help each other meet their needs cash free in one-to-one exchanges or in group projects.
