I recently offered to research homestay options for a friend who is interested in hosting ELS students. My friend owns a home in located in River Forest, IL, 2 city blocks from a university with an ELS program.
Can you please let me know how my friend should go about initiating contact with you? Does one have to open an account with homestayfinder first, and if so, how might s/he go about doing that? Also, is a home inspection required prior to listing one's residence with your organization, and if so, with whom should my friend arrange for one?

My friend asked me to explore this issue because my own family participated in an ELS homestay program in River Forest, IL, some 20 years ago. Back then we heard about the homestay option through word-of-mouth and dealt with one individual who served as the university's primary (or possibly only) ELS homestay contact. Based on information I've gleaned so far, I'm under the impression that this protocol has gone the way of the dinosaur. So, I'm attempting to gather as much information as possible regarding CURRENT ELS homestay options.
Thanks for any information you can provide me with respect to this issue.
