Become a Host Family

BLOOM’s hosting programs invite orphaned children from other countries to come to America for 2-5 weeks. During this time, the child experiences the love of Christ through a Christian family who exemplifies Him while living together in their home.   In addition, through family time together, children quickly develop a basic understanding and use of the English language. In turn, they develop a higher self-esteem and a feeling of accomplishment in many ways! The child also witnesses healthy relationships between parents and their children, which may be the first time ever this has occurred in their life. 
 
These basic skills provide tremendous emotional improvements that help the child as they grow up in their homeland.
 
They also receive dental and eye care, and where possible, medical care while on the program, something most of them have no access to in their home country.

3. TALK TO A PROGRAM COORDINATOR

A Program Mentor will reach out to you to help “Match” you with a child for hosting, and a Program Coordinator will then walk you through the paperwork process. We prioritize what family is best for the child, not the other way around. Your Program Mentor will be your guide through most of the hosting process.
