¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Homestay Seeker in Ft Worth area (Fort Worth)

123456789101112
We are searching for a host family. HF's come in all shapes and sizes, but always sharing these basics: open homes, open hearts, willingness to share of themselves to help others, and seek to make the world a better place. I bet this just might describe your family. I, too, am a helper. I have been entrusted by parents all over the world to find HF's to "geo-parent" their child who is studying abroad. One of my dad's said it this way: "We are blessed that our child was able to not only study and grow, but also become a wonderful part of an American family. We have grown together and look forward to them visiting us this summer. We are so thankful good people still exist, and good families to make the world better and stronger. We will forever be grateful for your love, patience, and encouragement."

Imagine having to send your child away, 7,000 miles from home just to give them a chance. Think of the worry, the sleepless nights, the enormous sacrifice these parents make because they want better opportunities for their child.

How can you help? contact me :) .
Does it pay anything? YES---HF's are offered a stipend to offset costs like food and transportation. Please keep in mind, student's natural parents are sacrificing a great deal for the dreams of their child and have pre-arranged a stipend amount with All Saints Episcopal School (the student attends and us) as their (DOHS and CSIET representatives). Allow adequate, not overly generous as all of us are stretching our budgets to do the best we can. The current ASES stipend is $1000 a month with an increase to $1100 for Fall 2020.

What are the absolutes? HFs must provide a private furnished bedroom, meals, and transportation. **Same you would want for your child, if you needed to send them abroad for 10-months.** As a HF myself, I am happy to share some insights when we speak!

All HF's have questions and I am here to answer them--contact me so we can set up a call and I can tell you more!!
