Host families provide more than just a bed and a few meals. They serve as "cultural ambassadors", sharing favorite aspects of their home communities with their international guests, while learning about life in the Middle East and Central Asia!

Through their time with their American families, exchange visitors best understand U.S. cultural values and way of life. The host family experience is repeatedly sited as the most meaningful aspect of the exchange visitor's stay in the US! More than 400 southern Virginia families, companies, and organizations have participated in home hosting and program activities for Legacy’s international visitors since 1994.
