Please Share: Looking for a new host home!

One of our exchange students, a wonderful 16-year-old student from Kazakhstan is in need of a host home. She is excelling in all of her classes and is very determined to make the most out of her year. She is very driven academically, participates in extra-curricular activities--she started a Russian club at DCIS to share her culture. She has 3 sisters, two are younger, so she has experience with younger kids. She would be completely open to a family with younger kids, not just families with teenagers! We have a wide variety of host families--many with younger children--younger children love having a "big sister". She also loves volunteering, shopping, movies, hanging out with friends and experiencing the most that Colorado has to offer.

Please contact Susan Erker at susan.erker@aspectfoundation.org or (415) 651-2476 (Broomfield office number). Thank you!
