    Hi, My name is Mary. I have a rental in Chicago with 4 rooms. We usually rent a minimum of 1 month to 1 year to medical personnel. I have posted this position on another platform, also.

    This 100 year old house is the house, in a quiet and very safe neighborhood on the Northwest side of Chicago. It is walking distance to the CTA train. And very close to O'Hare airport and the highway. There are parks and stores and a library nearby. It's right next to the Kennedy Expressway and a 10 minute walk to the Blue Line train station. There's a flower garden, a backyeard deck, and 4 guest rooms. 2 of the 1st floor rooms are private guest rooms. The 2nd floor has 2 Shared Rooms. Soon, your bed will be in the Shared guest room! :-) We have guests that come from all around the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and North America. Many are medical students here to take their exam to become a licensed physician.

    First of all, Volunteers will be meeting guests from every continent. As I type this, I have a doctor from Dubai and a couple from Brazil and a young woman from Germany on the 2nd floor.

    I usualy take volunteers on tours of the Botanic Gardens, the Art Institute of Chicago, and a unique neighborhood area. Volunteers can experience the beautiful museums, the Theater District, parks, and uniques architecture for which the city of Chicago is famous. There are unique areas in the city that have different cultural flavors, like Chinatown and Greek town and Little Italy, etc. There are some sculpture parks and a unique lakeshore that is ALL public land with a walking/bicycle trail. During the warmer months, there are many free concerts, outdoor symphony and theater performances. When I am home, travellers can meet my friends and explore the Chicago Botanic Gardens and other activities.

    Volunteers are from Workaway. They will be cleaning the house when tenants leave and also, cleaning the laundry room when necessary. Sometime, helper will be showing the guests where things are located in the house; and helping guests. There's also a component of an occasional repair or maintenance to the house, such as painting walls or organizing storage.
    Travellers will be working *️️usually*️️ the hours between 10:00 - 15:00. The hours are somewhat flexible. It could be earlier if guests leave early. There will be times when there is no cleaning during the day and just attending for a short while later in the day. Workawayers will be putting new sheets on every time a guest checks out. then, daily cleaning of the bathroom; watering the plants; dusting and vacuuming the room. On occasion, there is some outdoor work, such as watering the lawn or shoveling the snow. There is trash and recycling removal that is important to do daily.
    There is also a small amount of gardening in the flower garden. There are small projects of painting of the guest room closet, the doors, etc.
    The first 2 weeks are a mutual trial basis to see if this is a good fit. At any time, you or I can part from this agreement is it is not the right fit. If it is a good fit, you will be provided with a CTA montly pass.

  • Acomodação


    There is a chance you will be sharing a room with another Volunteer as it is a Shared Room. We have privacy screens, too.
    You will be provided pay of $8.25 per hour in the form of your food and transportation.
    We are a non-profit organization with only 4 small rooms. We no longer do payroll for Volunteers as this requires the sponsorship of a Work Visa and the taxing authorities prohibit us without a large deposit.

    Sometimes, we will show you a part of the city or have a barbecue or show you how to cook some dish. My favorite is to show a Workawayer the architecture from the Brown Line or take a tour.
    There is public transportation throughout the city of Chicago and suburbs. It is very easy. You can take the train from the airport to my B&B and to every part of the city. It's $5. The train or bus will usually cost $2.50, except for the trip out of the airport. And a week pass is $28; a month pass is $105. The pass will take you everywhere in the city. You will need to supply your own transportation pass.
    Once you are shown how to take care of the B & B and the guests, you will be independent. I will provide you with a calendar and text you about the next guest arriving. I use WhatsApp and Skype.
