Become a Host Family: Welcome

Host and Buddy Families

Hosts play a pivotal role in the program by providing a loving and attentive home, and participating in the daily program. As a host family, you are the veteran’s “home base,” offering lodging, breakfast daily, occasional dinners, as well as transportation to a daily meeting site and from a pick-up point. There is a multitude of event participation that your family will absolutely want to attend and keep every opportunity to be with your Veteran. Hosting is the greatest "Mitzvah" you can provide enhanced by sharing responsibilities with your chosen Buddy Family.
