I would like to donate furniture, clothing and household items. Do you know of an organization that could come and get them?
Do you know where I could have help with my tax income report at low cost?
Is there a place where I could take English classes?
I am looking for low cost activities.
I am looking for a supervised appartment or housing cooperative.
