International Friendship Ministries


Friendship Partner Program
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 Info]
