More and more local folks (Luray to Front Royal to Shenandoah to Mt. Jackson and beyond) have started to post gigs for child care, tutoring, elder care, cleaning services and pet care on Care.com. Creating an account is free. Once you sign up, you’ll be notified (not SPAMMed) when there are local gigs in your area. Note: for safety reasons, background checks are done on both parties. Every time you complete a gig, employers return to the site to rate your performance. Do a good job and get more gigs.
