Posted July 3, 2023

Location: Hyattsville Maryland (just north of Driskell Park), close to UMD, CUA, JPII, and the West Hyattsville Metro stop. Pleasant, walkable neighborhood with vibrant Catholic community. Good access to bus lines, metro, and bike trails.

Timeline:  We are looking for someone to join us starting this July or August, either for the academic year (August 2023-May 2024) or for the calendar year.

The chores: The chores that we could use help with include any of the following: cooking dinner, cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, driving children to or from school, laundry, yardwork, etc. Which of these the housemate helps with will depend on the housemate’s preferences and availability.

The house: We have a private bedroom available for the housemate. The bedroom is already furnished. The housemate would share the bathroom, kitchen, and all other common areas with the family. All utilities and fast internet are included. Free street parking, and secure indoor storage for bicycles.

About us: Our household includes dad (42), mom (40), three young children (ages 6, 4, and 2), and an au pair. We are practicing Catholics and parishioners at St. Jerome’s Parish.
