Become a Host Family

BLOOM’s hosting programs invite orphaned children from other countries to come to America for 4-8 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, or possibly later, if a child is offered adoption.
