Host a Shinshin

Host Families

Each shinshin rotates through three host families during his/her stay in Baltimore. These families serve as a home-away-from home for the shinshinim.

We provide:

  • Transportation and driving lessons
  • Scheduling and office space
  •  Emotional support and supervision
  • Host family gatherings and information

You provide:

  • A warm loving home with a separate bedroom
  •  Meals
  • Willingness to make the shinshin part of your family
We need hosts from:
Mid-August through mid-December
Mid-December through mid-April
Mid-April through end of August
