Chinese student host families sought

The following request for host families for Chinese students comes from Kathleen Hansen, Regional Director for [the New England] Center for Cultural Exchange and Greenheart (see her information below).  I do not know anything about this organization.  If you wish to learn more, please contact Kathy at the address below.

Dear Craig,

I have two international exchange students from China who would like to do a school year.   I am trying to find two families who might like the opportunity to host a Chinese student.

Could you forward it to the members of CAFAM and the Chinese School?

Below are the bio”s of two students.  We can’t show the pictures because of the Department of State new regulations.  We can send the pictures when a family has done an interest application.  It does not mean they have to host if they apply but it means they have had background checks.  We need to protect the identity of these students.
