International Student Placements is seeking family hosts to provide a private bedroom and meals for foreign students who will be attending Santa Monica and West Los Angeles Colleges.

Each student would pay the host family $700 a month for room and board.

International Student Placements is a 12-year-old organization based in Los Altos, near San Francisco.

“We have several international students who want to attend Santa Monica and West Los Angeles College this fall and we need an equal number of homes for them to stay in,” said Frances Sotcher, International Student Placements area coordinator.

“It can be a very rewarding experience,” Sotcher said.
