Friendship Family Program
The goal of this program is to provide a place of comfort and connection for international, missionary, and transcultural students while they're away from their families and home. It offers students an opportunity to further interact with U.S. culture, experience Christian hospitality and develop lifelong friendships. This popular program involves employee families and individuals who volunteer to provide care and hospitality to students in whatever way they can. While not required, families that are able to may sometimes provide accommodation for students when college housing and dining services are closed during breaks.
