Post: RILA is in need of a printer

Does your office have a multifunctional copier it’s willing to donate? RILA is looking for another copier to help print, scan and copy the large amounts of documentation immigration courts require. Ideal printer can print at least 40 pages per minute and fit in a closet. (The current one we have is: 20.4″H x 19.5″W x 16.8″D.)

Thank you,

Post: CF housing

Hi!  We are two CFs – late twenties/early thirties – looking for a third housemate in our rented row-house near Eastern Market.

The sunny master bedroom is available immediately. It has two large closets, hardwood floors, and its own bathroom.  We’ve also got a fireplace, back patio, roof deck, and recently renovated kitchen!  We’re about a 10 minute walk from Eastern Market metro station, 7 minute walk to Trader Joes, 20/25 minute walk to the Capitol.

We are both very involved in our church communities and would love to have a CF join us who enjoys warm hospitality, shared times of prayer, and clear and warm communication!

Rent is $1200 per month + utilities. If interested contact

Thank you,

Susannah Johnston

I have a friend (30s male) who is seeking low-cost short-term housing (room for rent would work). I’ll put him in touch if you have leads.

Thank you!

Post: Nanny available

Pregnant? Already thinking about childcare? Sadly, we will not need our wonderful Nanny, Angela starting next fall (Sept 2020). She has taken care of Miller and Sophie-Lou (and me) for the last 3 years. She is hoping to take care of a baby and work 25-35 hours per week. Thought I’d put it out there for those of you who plan WAY ahead! Email me here, or give me a call at (804) 980-6210.

Thank you,

Post: Rides from SC

Hi! My parents, Bill & Gail Calhoun, live in Chapin, South Carolina, outside of Columbia. We would love to see more of them, but they are really not able to travel up here on their own very well, and we are limited in our opportunities to go there.

If you know someone who travels to and from the area periodically, and would be willing to drive them up, they would be happy to provide the gas, and possibly even the car. Please call me (Liz Calhoun Lee) at 571-245-9625 to discuss possibilities/arrangements. We would especially love to have them come to trick-or-treat!

Post: FOR RENT: 2 BD/1 BA on Capitol Hill, steps away from Lincoln Park! – Caitlin Nunery

Available Oct. 6, we are renting out the top floor of our beloved Capitol Hill rowhome. The almost ten foot ceilings and large windows make it bright and sunny, and you can enjoy a brand new kitchen. We have loved living within walking distance to Eastern Market and Barracks Row. It is a special place that we are sad to leave! Please see our Zillow listing and feel free to email me directly with any questions.
