Host Family Programme

At Manna House, we believe in the power of relationships and community, especially for those navigating life as immigrants and on college campuses. Our Host Family Program aims to create meaningful connections between immigrant students and caring individuals or families within our church community. This program is a wonderful opportunity for students to find a home away from home, and for hosts to experience the joy of welcoming and supporting young scholars during their college or grad school journey.

How It Works

Student Matching: We carefully match immigrant college students with willing hosts based on shared interests, personalities, and availability.
Personal Connections: Host families extend warm invitations to students for casual meetups, shared meals, coffee chats, or other activities. These interactions provide a space for friendship, encouragement, and cultural exchange.

Support and Guidance: Hosts become trusted friends, offering guidance and support as students navigate college life, cultural adjustments, and personal challenges.

Shared Experiences: Through simple gestures like home-cooked meals, attending events together, or sharing stories, both hosts and students build cherished memories and form lasting bonds.

Mutual Learning: The Host Family Program isn't just about offering support; it's a chance for both hosts and students to learn from each other's experiences and perspectives.

How to Get Involved

Host Families: If you're interested in becoming a host, we'd love to have you on board! Your willingness to open your heart and home can make a lasting impact on a student's life.
