Apply to Be a Host

Through Children's Heart Project, Samaritan's Purse partners with hospitals across the U.S. and in Grand Cayman to provide cardiac procedures to boys and girls from countries where there is limited access to such operations.

We are looking for host churches and families located near these hospitals to open their doors and hearts to care for these special guests for several weeks as they recuperate from surgery and have follow-up medical appointments. Host families take care of the guests in their homes, providing transportation and arranging activities during their stay with the support of their churches. In addition to host home opportunities for residents of Grand Cayman, local church members can host Children's Heart Project groups in a mission house.


Qualifications for hosts:

  • Do you live near one of these metro areas?
    • Austin, Texas
    • Houston, Texas
    • San Antonio, Texas
    • Charleston, South Carolina
    • Cleveland, Ohio
    • Columbus, Ohio
    • New Orleans, Louisiana
    • Rochester, Minnesota
    • Sacramento, California
    • Valhalla/Westchester, New York
    • Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
  • Are you a follower of Jesus Christ?
  • Are you a member of an evangelical church?
  • Do you align with the Samaritan's Purse statement of faith?

We're glad that you're interested in serving with Children's Heart Project. If you meet all of these qualifications and are interested in being a host with Children's Heart Project, inquire for more information. A ministry representative will follow up with you.
