Hour Impact is a time bank program in Clark County where individuals exchange assets, resources and expertise with time as the sole currency. For every hour deposited, members are able to withdraw an hour of service for their needs. An hour exchanged based on the equality of time empowers individuals to utilize their assets and enhance their lives, neighborhoods and communities. The program assists those who may be unable to pay for important services to support themselves and acknowledges that every human being has something of value to contribute. To participate, you must create an account and profile page and complete a background check. You can then post assets you have to offer, and view other peoples’ profile and offerings.
