We will discuss the who's, what's, and why's of the process. The current need for foster care is at an all-time high in Whitman County and in the State of Washington.

Mateja Travel A one week holiday in Slovenia can provide you with an exciting and diverse experience.

Take part in a mass- participation athletic event on another continent-or simply enjoy the experience and support your favorite runner as a spectator or volunteer and became a part of local community for a day! We abide to the philosophy that it does not matter how much of the world you have seen but rather how much of it you have experienced. Add Slovenia to your bucket list and allow us to let you experience it! Mateja (pron. MAH-tay-yah) is the owner Mateja Travel.
