New and previous Hoosier Hospitality families are invited to take part in the program with this new group of students."

The article notes, "This is a great opportunity for youth to be exposed to new cultures and customs. For most of the students this will be their first time living in the United States and so far away from home. A warm welcome into the Greencastle _MG_0054.jpgcommunity will greatly enhance their experiences and ability to be productive and happy members of the community."
