Summer 2022 Program
Lifeline is thrilled to offer a Colombia Hosting Program June 26th – July 10, 2022. We are now accepting applications for families to host individual children or sibling groups from Colombia for two weeks this summer. This hosting program allows children who are eligible for adoption to spend time with a loving Christian family, while also experiencing American culture and learning some of the English language. Host families can host with the intent to pursue adoption or to become an advocate for their host child.Apply Today

Completing this form indicates your interest in the Colombia Hosting Program. A Lifeline team member will follow up with you about submitting this form. Your application will be reviewed and, if all required criteria is met, approved.
Complete a Home Study
Your family will be contacted by a local Lifeline social worker to begin the home study process after your pre-app is submitted. Home studies must be approved by March 15, 2022. Home studies will then be translated and submitted to Colombia by March 25, 2022.
Your Lifeline social worker will assist you in the education process and will approve you to host. Lifeline will help your family prepare through education, logistics planning, and child-specific training.
You will have the opportunity to review files of children in the program. You are able to write a letter requesting to host a specific child or sibling group that will be placed with your file. Colombia will review your file and could ask clarifying questions throughout the evaluation process to determine final approval to host.
