My International Family is dedicated to building cross-cultural bridges that cultivate a more compassionate, informed and responsible global community rooted in mutual respect and solidarity. We seek to accomplish this mission through a variety of opportunities in language learning, teaching and homestays.
MIF has been the leading homestay placement organization for K-12 students in the Chicagoland area since 2013 and has been involved in homestays and hosting for international students for over twelve years. Since 2002, we have placed and hosted approximately 2,800 students from over 40 countries in 48 states. In 2018, MIF expanded to become a J-1 designated sponsor through the US Department of State; and currently houses a host family database of more than 3,500 families.
