Host Families Who Care


Host families provide love, support, and guidance for international students. Host families often develop close relationships with their student’s family, and many find opportunities to visit them long after they’ve returned home.


All host families must pass a background check and home check so that international students feel safe in their environment at all times


Dream City Christian's network of families are closely connected to schools activities. Athletes will often live in the same homes as their teammates, making schedules more convenient.

"Our family has hosted 5 students from DCCS over the past few years. It's a rewarding experience for our entire family, giving us the opportunity to learn about different cultures, and make meaningful connections with someone from different parts of the world."
The Nelman Family
