DRA Housing knows exactly how to find host families for foreign exchange students. Choosing your host family is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when planning to study abroad.

A host family is the first and most crucial contact you will have when arriving in the U.S. The experience with your host family will be immersive. Time spent together can help you enhance your English language skills while also introducing you to American culture and customs.

It comes as no surprise to learn that international students and members of their host families often develop lifelong friendships. Having helped thousands of students find their perfect host families, you can put your faith in us to do it again.
