Gwinnett Gives TimeBank
The Gwinnett Gives TimeBank, which promotes equality and builds caring community economies through inclusive exchange of time and talent, was started by a group of parents who all have children with disabilities. The group's initial interest was focused on exploring human service co-operatives, life sharing and other alternative arrangements that allow adults with developmental disabilities to live and participate in integrated community settings. As part of the Real Communities Initiative, GCDD helped them launch the first TimeBank in the metro area of Georgia in 2012. For more information about TimeBanks, visit, www.timebanks.org.
