To provide and foster an effective local service exchange system through which participants have their needs met and their personal abilities valued by using hours as currency; the ultimate goal is the building
of a strong, responsive, and connected community.
To build a community whose neighbors generously share their talents, skills, and time with each other and especially with those in need.
Core Values of Our Timebank
Every person is an asset. Everyone contributes something new and interesting to the community.
We present our priceless talents to contribute to our society such as building strong communities, giving back, making democracy work, etc.
A community is a connection between people who are not related to each other by blood but share a strong bond.
Instead of just asking for help, here is a way to offer your talents and give back to the community and build strong relations.
Everyone is treated with respect, equality, and love.
Founded in 2004 as part of the Time Banks USA initiative, the Phoenixville Area Time Bank counts among its nearly 160 current members people with many different talents and skills. Our members have many things in common - values, commitment, generosity, curiosity, and neighborly concern for others, to name a few. By exchanging their talents and skills, Time Bank members put their time where their values are: in the service of others and their community.
Time Bank is about giving back as much as you are able and getting what you need to maintain a purposeful life. It's a win-win for you and everyone in our community
