Urgent need for host family in Portland

Dear CAFAM members,

A host family is needed for a Cheverus sophomore from China for the spring semester (or a longer term). She is a highly-motivated student as well as an active participant in various school activities. Basic requirements for the host family include providing a private bedroom, transportation to and from school (if not within walking distance of Cheverus), and breakfast and dinner.

This is a great opportunity to help a foreign student and engage in a cultural exchange experience! You’ll also receive a generous stipend through New Oasis International Education agency.

If you are interested, please contact Jenny Mills ASAP by email jmills(at)newoasisedu.com or by cell (202) 531-1210. If you know others who may be interested, please help spread the word.

Thank you!
