About the Eastside Timebank

The Eastside Timebank of King County, based in the communities of the eastside, is like an old-time community where neighbors help neighbors, connecting through high-tech tools. Our timebank is based on the idea that each of us has unique gifts, talents, and resources to share, and we all have needs that others can fill.

Every hour of service that a timebank member provides to someone in the community earns one hour of credit, which can be exchanged for an hour of service from another member. All services are valued equally. An online database makes it easy to see what skills and services your neighbors have to offer, and what services they need, so you can match your skills and needs with others in the community.

Examples of Skills and Services Currently Offered by Our Members

Sailing lessons, jewelry repair, massage, job coaching, computer help, budgeting, needlecraft lessons, cooking, and a lot more...

What Our Members Are Saying
