A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE STUDENTS WE SERVE
These youth that we serve are not your typical students, they come from many situations and varied degrees of brokenness. Most are used to relying only on themselves and it is hard to understand why strangers would care when their own flesh and blood may not. They are hungry and tired but will not ask for assistance because they are afraid to ask for too much or they won’t get anything. These students have been sleeping in the woods, in cars, or on friends couches or floors. Even if they have been living inside on a couch they probably have not asked or received food, a shower, etc. These youth are resilient and still get up and go to school each day because they know education is their way out and the only thing they can control.
WHO CAN BE A HOST FAMILY
Anyone is eligible to be a host family as long as they have a bedroom available and the finances to be able to provide room and board for the student. We have an extensive application process to protect the students and our Safe Families, but once you and the students complete this process, you can begin helping these students find hope. If you are in a rental, please make sure that your landlord is in approval of your taking in a student.
