BASEMENT SUITE NEEDED – I am a breast cancer mom that is in desperate need of a basement type of suite before August 1st, 2017. I homeschool our 2 children (ages 14 & 11) and we have had many rather extreme challenges in our lives over the past year or so. Also our house was arsoned last September and we lost everything. We have been very actively searching for a minimum 2 bedroom suite in West Abbotsford that is within our budget, but are not having much success.I have been praying about where God could direct us to find a safe place for our family and Northview kept coming to mind. If anyone knows of a suite we could rent we would be so very grateful and blessed. Our needs are as follows: *Minimum 2 bedrooms *WiFi (as we homeschool) *away from the “hubub” of downtown. *somewhat pet friendly (we have a family member that is completely hairless,10 pounds, mature and quiet, very clean and well behaved-a hairless terrier). The added stress and energy of trying to find a place to call home is making it more “challenging” to go through my treatments, be a happy & positive mom for our children and complete daily tasks etc. We would love to extend any of our skills to the family that we rent from to (hopefully) help offset a slightly lower rental cost. We can help with lawn care, child care, housekeeping, cooking/baking, pet/farm animal care, small errands, painting, shopping etc.. Thank you kindly for your time and God bless. Please contact (21/07)
