[ARCHIVED] Host Families Needed

Host families come in all shapes and sizes. To host, all you need to do is provide a student with a bed, a quiet place to study (separate bedroom not required), meals and a warm, supportive environment. Young couples, single parents and “empty nesters” are welcome to host. We have had many great PAX students come through Ledyard High School. We look forward to the continuation of this program.

When you talk to past host families, you will hear the most surprising thing about being a host family has been how easy it was to welcome a new son /daughter into our home. One family told me, “While we knew that he would learn a lot here, we did not realize how important his culture and family would become to us.” To be honest, other have said “We were not sure what to expect and were scared of what might go wrong. Well, that has all passed and now we are so glad that we didn’t say NO to PAX. We would have missed out on such a wonderful young girl with dreams of coming to America.

If you would like to learn about hosting and to consider the essays and photos of PAX students, contact Debbie Evans, PAX Community Coordinator at 860-464-9600 ext.144, 860-464-9480 or email
