Become a Host Family

Would you like to become a Host Family?

Holy Spirit High School has a new, growing international program and currently needs qualified host families to provide a safe and nurturing home for our international students arriving in the fall! We hope to find the best hosts from our wonderful school community. If you live within 30 minutes of the school, currently have a student attending Holy Spirit or know of someone who would make a great host, please consider this amazing opportunity!


Gphomestay will provide host families with dedicated support staff, host family training, and on-call emergency support throughout the school year, as well as regular group activities for you and the student to share with other participating families.


The students have their own health insurance and spending money. The host family should speak English at home, ensure that the student eats 3 nutritious meals per day, and provide a private bedroom for the student’s sole use. Being able to involve the student in family events and activities is a big plus. Participating families will receive a stipend of $1,200 per month. Simply go to or call 973-886-6561 to start the application process today!
