As the COVID-19 pandemic begins to directly affect the DC, MD, VA area, those working on the front lines in health care will probably need additional assistance with reliable childcare and other personal services in order to continue caring for our community. As medical, allied health profession, or graduate students we are in a unique position to provide these services and help our community. Based on your willingness and community need, you will be matched with a family to provide babysitting or another service of your choosing. These services are provided voluntarily by you and are neither endorsed by, nor provided in association with, any university, college or institution.
Once matched with a family, please communicate with them directly to understand their needs and how you can help. We will do our best to match you based on all the information you provide.
