Host families are expected to involve the children in an active, nurturing environment, and provide them with their basic necessities while they are here. In addition to family/vacation activities, families must attend weekend events that bring all families and host children together.
Children often arrive with limited items. We ask host families to provide basic clothing and hygiene items for their host child.
In addition to vacation activities and participating in day-to-day family life, OHHC hosts several activities designed to bring children and families together. These events also give the escort an opportunity to check in with the children, and for host parents to ask questions and share their experiences.
