Area: OberösterreichDear all! My name is Waltraud. My partner and me, we live very basic (of course we have electricity ;-) and apart from a village in the countryside of Upper-Austria in nice scenery, next to the wood. Here you can enjoy nature by walking, jogging, biking etc…… Next small towns are 3 km and 5 km far away. There you have train-stations, departures/arrivels are running every hour to LINZ. LINZ is the capitol of Upper-Austria, 35 km far away from my home. There is a rich offering of culture. I’m 54 years old, I have a fine, small shop in linz, where I sell among other things my fine and smart works of brazings and other handwork. My partner is 60 years old, his profession is sociologist, marine-engineer and inn-keeper. He is committed in (sub)cultural projects, he writes political and sociological texts...., altogether a very interesting person with a broad science of politics, history, sociologie, contemporary cultural movements, philosophie....., and football, of course. We offer to you a uncomplicated living environment, a home in nice scenery and a appartement for couples. I expect from you curiosity in what’s around you, necessarily interest in culturel events and general help in the household and maintenance works. Open/close chickens house in the morning/evening..., to take care for the house, if we are away. We also love nice cooking and beer and other spirits. I prefer people who speak German, or people, who try to learn German. All others are also welcome. Yours Waltraud

The shelter, Portland Rehabilitation Management (PRM), is an NGO providing shelter, food, medicine, and other rehabilitative services to the homeless. We currently serve 15-20 clients, (roughly one third of the marginalized homeless population of Port Antonio), who have been socially displaced often due to many of the following factors: • Mental Health Issues (mostly schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) • Physically Debilitating Condition • HIV/AIDS • Drug Use Disorder • Displacement resulting from ex-offender or deportee status or circumstance. • Abuse or Exploitation We are an NGO charged by the Portland Parish Council, to develop, fund and administer a rehabilitation program for the homeless persons of the parish of Portland. Our aims are: 1. To meet the basic needs of the homeless persons in Portland; for shelter, food, clothing and medical care. 2. To deliver a Day Time Rehabilitation Program to empower our clients with social and independent living skills and opportunities. 3. Reduce the number of homeless and socially displaced persons in Portland. Current projects: building a female dormitory, expanding the garden, building a chicken coop We would welcome any volunteers with experience in the health field, especially in medical and psychiatric care.
