Become a Host Family

Host Families of Mending Kids are special people who provide a loving home for children who travel to the United States for surgery. While the responsibility is great, so are the rewards of seeing a child's life transformed. If you are interested in hosting a child during their stay in the U.S. for surgery, please submit the application on website.

How you help Our volunteer medical teams donate their time and services ​to care for children while educating local medical staff.
About us For more than a decade, Mending Kids has delivered life-saving surgical care to children in developing countries around the world. In 2014, we launched our first US-based surgical mission. ​ Serving children in Southern California, Hometown Mission: Los Angeles provided a chance at a better life for kids whose conditions have been deemed “non life-threatening” or “elective” by insurance providers. We know that for a young boy with a large hairy nevus on his face, or a little girl in need of cleft-nose reconstruction, who may feel self-conscious or experience bullying as a result of their physical appearance, surgery can be truly life changing.​
