Southeastern Massachusetts Time Exchange
The Southeastern Massachusetts Time Exchange is way for members of a community – both individuals and organizations - with different needs and skills to exchange services with one another. When one Time Exchange member performs one hour of a service for another, they receive credit for that hour, called a ‘Time Credit’. A Time Exchange member can then use that Time Credit to receive a service from another member.
It is a way for people to get something they need in exchange for something they can do, without any money changing hands! It is available to anyone willing and able to work at helping another person. When a Time Exchange member wants help, they find and contact another member through the directory. They can also call the Time Exchange Coordinator, who can help match members up for exchanges. After the exchange of service, the member providing the help logs the hours earned, and a confirmation is sent to the recipient of the help.
