We're looking for help installing a hand rail and toilet paper dispenser for in our bathroom at the Social Justice Center.

child care


Posted by Tigist Yalemeshet

I'm requesting childcare for my 9 year old son on the weekends while I'm at work. Typically for about 8 hours on Saturday and Sunday from 11:30-8:30ish. I'm looking for a responsible person who doesn't drink, or smoke in any way due to medical reasons. Please reach out if you're interested in helping. I'd love to talk more. I'm happy to help with transportation to and from my house if that is needed as well. Thank you so much.
