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 are events that require your attendance, but, trust us – you won’t want to miss any opportunity to be with your Veteran. Most importantly creating strong familial connections with the veteran. Hosting is a rewarding experience enhanced by sharing responsibilities with your chosen Buddy Family.
