International Students Need You!

We Need Host Families!

The WISE Foundation is happy to announce that we are recruiting seasonal host families for our busiest session of the year! We anticipate many different students of varying ages to be in Northern California for studying at this time and would love to have your family as a part of the WISE family.


If you are 25 years or older, can provide 2-3 meals per day, a private room with a bed(s), a place to store clothing, a well-lit place to study, and most importantly, a safe and caring environment, we strongly encourage you to call today!
