Thank you to all the families who are contacting us about hosting. We are very thankful that so many of you want to help. Our staff is a bit overwhelmed with the number of calls & emails, but are doing our best to get back to everyone. At this time, we do not have any definite information on children coming to the US for care or specifics on how long the process will be. I will update you all when we know more.
We have had numerous requests for our host family application. Unfortunately, our website seems to be overloaded and not working as well as we like, so I have added a link in the right hand column & at the bottom of this post where you can download the forms. This link will take you to Media Fire where you will see a screen with four files. This link does work as there have already been over 150 downloads since this morning. To help with downloading, please be sure to read all of the instructions below.
You must download the files one at a time.
1) Do not use the download check boxes, they don't work. Simply click on the file name & you will see a download button pop up just to the right of the file name. Click on this to download (ignore all advertisements...that is what you get when you use free hosting!).
2) You will see a a yellow box come up that says "Begin download now"; click on this box to begin process.
3) Move back to file page and repeat this process for other files.
4) Download HERE
Please be sure to download all FOUR files. There is a host family letter, application instructions (including where to mail your paperwork), the application itself and a document that describes our requirements and policies.
I hope this helps!
Thanks again for your willingness to help us in our mission to help the Haitian Children!
