Welcoming Angels Spring Hosting Program

Welcoming Angels Orphan HostingThe
boys that participated in the Winter hosting program returned safe and sound to
Ethiopia today. We are praying for their precious hearts as they process
the experiences they had while with their host families and adjust to being
back in Ethiopia. What a wonderful group of boys!

We
are currently recruiting host families for our spring program. The
children will be in the United States for the month of June. At this
time, interested families must be willing to host children, mostly boys, ages
12-15 and sibling sets with boys and girls between 10-15 years old. We have a
few girls age 13 and 14 available. We also have healthy girls and boys
age 7 and up that are HIV+ that are waiting to participate in the program as
well. 

The
cost to host a child is $1,800 plus the child’s airfare. The cost includes
social work services, training, program fees, travel documents/visas for the
children, medical evaluations of the children prior to participation in the
program, etc. Airfare cost can range from $1,300 – $2,000. Group airfare will
be purchased to keep costs as low as possible. America World encourages
families to fundraise to help offset the cost of the program.

We
already have hosting communities forming in South Carolina, Maryland and
Indiana. We have a great deal of interest in other states as well, so if
you are interested in hosting in your state, please contact Michelle.Reed@awaa.org for more
information.
