Community Supported Families

January 2019

The Sebastopol area time bank is piloting a new offering for families with babies born in the last 12 months to receive free support. This Community Supported Families pilot program is looking for up to 10 families who would like to receive the gift of help from members of our time bank community.


The vision of our project is  to contribute to the health of our community by supporting families with young children.


Who we are seeking:

  • Up to 10 families who reside in the greater Sebastopol area with a baby born in the last year.

  • Someone willing to receive support with non-intimate tasks such as running errands, grocery shopping and delivery, pet walking/care, garden/yard tending and meal preparations from one of our time bank volunteers who are specifically interested in supporting new families.

Families will receive support 1-2 times per week for sessions of 4-6 weeks:

Session 1: January/February support

Session 2: April/May support

Session 3: July/August support

Session 4: October/November support


Time line:

  • Interested families will complete an easy online questionnaire and be matched with a time bank member.

  • You will become a member of the Sebastopol are time bank (it's really great!)

  • The two parties will decide on a schedule for the session.

  • Families and their respective community supporters will be connected 1-2 times per week.

  • After the 4-6 week community support session ends, the participants will complete a short feedback form.

After each session, we will review and learn from our previous experience. Then, we will offer this program perpetually in our community so new families can receive valuable well as create more community connections and friendships.
