Exchange Student Looking for Gluten Free Host Family

A couple of years ago, I had great success finding a host family for an exchange student with celiac disease.  I am hoping to repeat this success.   

The following is an email from a Swiss family looking for an American host family for their daughter who has celiac. 

 


 

 

We are searching for a host family for our daughter who has celiac disease.

 

We are a Swiss family of 4. We speak Swiss/German. Currently we have an exchange student living with us for 6 months from Costa Rica.  This exchange has been arranged through the AFS program.

 

Our daughter, Enya was diagnostic with celiac disease 1 year ago, but the thing is she would like to do an exchange in America for one year with AFS, to improve her English and also to learn about a different culture.   This exchange year would be from August 2017 to June 2018.  Enya will be 15 and a half years old at that time, so she would attend high school. For children with celiac disease it can be very difficult to find a host family so we decided to start looking for a host family ourselves.  This is why we are contacting you for help to find a family for our daughter. 

 

Thank you very much for your help!

 


 

If you are interested or know someone who might be able to help, please email me and I will pass along the message.
