Temporary Housing

We understand that most international students will have not have permanent housing pre-arranged prior to arriving in Cleveland. Our group of volunteers and host families can provide temporary short term housing whilst you look for a permanent place to call your own. We are usually set up to host students for the Fall semester. If you need temporary housing during the summer and spring, please feel free to contact us too. We have limited hosts during summer and spring but we will do our best to pair you up with a host on a case by case basis. Click here to find out more about our temporary and short term housing program.

Furniture Giveaway

International Students travel from near and far, and usually do not pack furniture to be brought here to Cleveland. Our group offers free furniture to incoming students in our annual furniture giveaway usually held in mid-August. For more information on this annual event, visit our furniture giveaway page.

Ladies/Spouse Support Fellowship

Once a week, a group of single ladies, student spouses and some local volunteers get together for a time of mutual support and friendship. Led by Arlene Frankos, this group does everything from discussing family or child raising matters, how to manage finances, to current events. Primarily attended by wives of students, this group also does not discriminate against the stay-at-home hubby. Please contact Arlene for more information or visit this page.
