Mission Statement

CIH believes that despite diverse manners of dress, accent, religion, age, skin color, level of education or political ideologies, everyone stands together as one human family. While sponsored and predominantly funded by churches, it is important to note that CIH is a friendship and hospitality program, not an evangelizing program. We believe our faith is modeled through our actions and welcoming love for strangers. Host Students for X-mas Please respond to Nikki Bowen for more infor at ndbsmile@gmail.com or 904-377-7729. Set Your Host Dates Now. Open Heart / Student Love We must lead the world in global understanding of cultures, religions, languages and human relationships based on dignity and respect of all people.


Why Host Students: For most international students, Christmas is a very lonely time. Many can’t afford to go home and haven't seen their families for a while. The dorms are closed and no one is around to explain the meaning of the Christmas tradition. This is a nation-wide program for friendship & hospitality for two the weeks of Christmas holidays. They can visit a home and experience an American family culture & Christmas tradition! Students get to share their own culture and foods with their host and other international students. A Heart of Volunteerism: Volunteering will sharpen minds & skills that change the course of history. Student experiences with American people and homes are great resume boosts for you. Just as these students believe that one person CAN impact the world so do we & we invite you to be part of a life that will impact the world.
