Seeking Babysitters and Childcare Providers

Whether you are a teen, parent or grandparent, our congregants are looking for childcare help and we wish to reconnect them with you! If you are dependable, responsible, have a special interest in young children and are safety conscious we would like to add you to our registry.

We will try to make introductions, whenever possible, between available babysitters and parents in need by neighborhood. To add your name to our Congregation-wide registry, please contact contact Rachel Schonwetter at (415) 751-2541 x171 or rschonwetter@emanuelsf.org.
