What Are We About
HOW DO WE SERVE
Time Dollar provides basic needs services by treating our guests with respect and dignity. We build relationships with our neighbors, encourage reciprocity and the importance of community.
Time Dollar believes that all people are created equal, and that they have basic human rights; namely, the right to be heard, respected, valued and to have what they need to accomplish their dreams. We respect talents and strength of all community members. We treat all community members with dignity.
Time Dollar offers programs to the near west side community that facilitates self-sufficiency and communal interdependence. We believe that in doing this we promote a healthy environment for all.
Time Dollar believes we need each other. We believe it is the community's way of life to rely on relationships for the good of all involved. Time Dollar believes "it takes a village to raise a child" and to support the healthy development of all adults as well. We believe helping can always be a two-way transaction. We must enable the recipient to give back to others and by doing so we provide them the opportunity to "pay it forward".
