International Student Placement (ISP) is seeking host families for students from overseas who are attending local colleges.

As a home host, a family provides a private bedroom and meals.

In exchange, the student pays the host $700 per month for room and board.

“We have several international students who want to attend Santa Monica College and West Los Angeles College this fall and we need an equal number of homes for them to stay in,” said Frances Sotcher, ISP area coordinator. “It can be a very rewarding experience.”
