The CRIS TimeBank, piloted in May 2014, was established to provide assistance to area seniors through the use of an informal support network. The program connects individuals with voluntary help and support from other community members.
The TimeBank is a volunteer-based, “pay it forward” program where both needed tasks and offered services are fulfilled and recorded. One hour of helping a member earns an individual one TimeBank hour of receiving services in the future.
The CRIS TimeBank also has a Community Fund where hours are donated and available for members who need service, but are unable to offer service to others.
