Wise Homestay Manager Clinic

Please join us for a demonstration of our new software!

Program Information

Please come out and help the WISE staff greet Eric, one of the programmers from Ireland who has been incredibly helpful while getting our new system organized specifically to meet the needs of our host families and students!

We have acquired the exclusive rights to a software program that will enable us to ensure that we can manage the placements in a more professional manner and allow you, the host family, to participate in the process.

This program will eliminate double bookings for groups, give you the capability to notify us when you wish to go on vacation or take a break from hosting, special features allow you, the family, to let us know how things are going in your home by logging on to the system and make comments and you may also make direct changes to your family’s profile.


For host families this means:

  • Fewer human errors - This system ensures that there are very minimal mistakes made due to typos / misinformation / outdated info
  • Real-time updates - Instant emails or texts to inform you if there is a change in pickup time for your student(s), a UC Davis scheduled trip is running behind, etc.
  • Personalization - Advanced features allow host families to update their own profile information; new pets, family additions, rooms available, etc.
  • PAYMENT - This program will allow WISE to speed up and ensure accuracy in the stipend payment process. We know this has been a serious issue in the past and by implementing Homestay Manager we are now able to make it faster, easier and more efficient!

Demonstration Schedule Listed Below

We know that this is fairly short notice, however we just received word regarding Eric's visit and we hope that you will try to join in on one of the "demos". He advised that the sessions generally run 1.5 - 2 hours and he’s looking forward to answering any questions you may have!


Please RSVP to Shannon, Shannon@wisefoundation.com, and let us know which of the training/demos you would like to join. We want to be sure to have enough chairs and snacks available for those that will be attending.


If you are unable to come to one of these sessions, we can set up a time for you to come to our office and we would be happy to go over the information with you at a later time as well.
