Review for New Horizons For Children Inc, Mentor, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We became interested in orphan hosting after a friend had hosted, and after considering several hosting groups online we chose New Horizons because we were impressed by their Christian commitment and their professionalism. We hosted a child for 4 weeks over Christmas 2013, and the whole experience has been rich and soul-stretching, truly a life-changing experience. Our host son was a gift to us and to our biological children, who all learned from him and enjoyed him. Our host son was not angelic at every moment (he is, after all, a preteen boy with lots of energy, and we were all dealing with a major language barrier) BUT the challenges he presented were mild, and we had been prepared well by the thorough training we received. Every NHFC staff member we had contact with was warm and prompt, encouraging and helpful. The staff is visionary, efficient and sacrificing--every one of them works so hard to bless these children. We hope to host again and will donate when we cannot host. We will recommend NHFC whenever we can.
