ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Host Orphans Worldwide is a life-changing program for families in the Rochester area.

The 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer-run organization brings orphan children to the U.S. during the summer and over the Christmas holiday. Its goal is to provide cultural exchange and respite as children spend time with a loving American family. 

Jill Krenzer had no idea how hosting a child would change her life and the lives of her husband and children. She shared her story as a team member of Host Orphans Worldwide. Her family decided to host now 10-and-a half-year-old Roman.

Learn more about the program here, or call (541) 335-1768 and ask for Clete. The deadline to be a host this summer is April 15.
