The Five Core Values
Every one of us has something of value to share with someone else.
There are some forms of work that money will not easily pay for, like building strong families, revitalizing neighborhoods, making democracy work, advancing social justice. Time credits are designed to reward, recognize and honor that work.
“How can I help you?” needs to change so we ask: “Will you help someone too?” Paying it forward ensures that, together, we help each other build the world we all will live in.
Helping each other, we reweave communities of support, strength & trust. Community is built by sinking roots, building trust, creating networks.
The heart and soul of democracy lies in respect for others. We strive to respect where people are in the moment, not where we hope they will be at some future point.
