Seeking Host Family for ABC House Scholar

For one weekend each month during the school year, the host family provides the student with a home where he can relax, socialize and study. The idea is for the family and the scholar to enjoy and learn from interacting with one another, and to broaden the experience of both. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact Wendy Kohler at 413-250-0091 or
