Friendship Partner Program helps to connect
Americans with international students. Since most
internationals are very far away from their home,
International Friendship Ministries (IFM) tries to find
you a home-away-from home (not a live-in situation).
Through the Friendship Partner Program, an
American family or a single person adopts an
international student/family as friends. These American
Friendship Partners try to include you in some of their
family activities, helping you adjust to life in
America, and giving you practical help such as taking
you shopping for food (when possible). Most importantly,
they will be a special friend to you while you are far
away from your home country and relatives. [More
