Extending Hospitality Across Cultures: Host Families Needed!

Did you know there are students from many cultures studying at GRCHS?

Beginning in early January 2020*, we have several 9th through 11th grade international students needing host homes: some of these students are studying at GRCHS long-term and need homes for the semester and longer and others are coming just for a 2-week Winterim camp to get to know GRCHS and to experience Grand Rapids and American culture and family life.

Families with children of any age make great hosts as do empty nesters! Support and stipend are provided. 

*If January doesn’t work for your family but you are interested in future hosting opportunities, please visit our website at and contact Joelle Williams at 616.574.5652 or
