UUFSD Bed & Breakfast Program

Many UU congregations around the country have Bed & Breakfast programs in which members offer their guest room to out-of-town UUs in exchange for a donation to the church by the guest. First UU in San Diego started such a program over a year ago and have taken in about $9000 to date. I approached their coordinator, Jan Garbosky, to see if we could add members from UUFSD to their B&B roster, using the administrative arrangements First UU has already worked out. In exchange, we would give them a share of the donation from visitors.

Mark Tuller and I met with Jan recently and heard a progress report on the First UU program and we were impressed. We would like to find out if there are UUFSD members who would be interested in participating in a pilot program with First UU. If you are interested, email Lisa Shaffer ( for more details, and then you can decide if you want to explore further. Information about the program at First UU is here:
