ARCH hosted this webinar with the BREAK Exchange.

Timebanking is a time-based currency. Give one hour of service to another, and receive one time credit. You can use the credits in turn to receive services — or you can donate them to others. Designed to increase our individual and community well-being, Timebanking takes place through exchanges by members as they give and receive services to each other, or through group and community activities and projects. Members can include individuals, groups and organizations.

In this webinar, presenters described how TimeBanking can be used to provide respite and caregiving support. Read more about TimeBanks.org.
