LOOKING FOR JUNE help.
Some paid job opportunities available too.
FYI- I try to respond immediately with a yes or no so please only contact us if you truly want to stay with us. I don’t have time to wait for an answer because of other requests that you may have sent out. I don’t mean to be rude but it gets frustrating and is not fair to others who are looking for a host family. :) thanks
