What is linkAges Community?

linkAges Community is a network that helps members form meaningful connections with people of all ages through rewarding exchanges of abilities and interests. Communities are strengthened as members connect with one another to share and learn skills or to give and receive help. Members earn hours by providing services to other members, and then use those hours to receive services in return.
