Host family requirements

Our host families come in all shapes and sizes; single parent households, empty-nesters, couples with no children, and families with small children or with teenagers. They are expected to provide a bed, breakfast and evening meals Monday through Friday and all meals on the weekends, and, most importantly, a stable, caring environment.
