Minot Area Chamber EDC announces Adopt an Airman


The Minot Area Chamber Economic Development Corporation (EDC) in partnership with Minot Air Force Base introduces the Adopt-an-Airman program. Adopt-an-Airman allows military and local families to “adopt” an Airman to form new bonds, friendships and support networks.
 
For a lot of Airmen, it is their first time away from home. Adopt-an-Airman allows military members to have a sense of hospitality. These families provide Airmen with a caring environment and a sense of belonging that could potentially build relationships that last a lifetime. Host families are encouraged to treat military members as a member of the family, not simply as a guest.
 
“We are always so thankful for the men and women of Minot Air Force Base. This program is a way to extend a sense of home and hospitality to those who are new to our community,” said Carla Dolan, Vice President of the Minot Area Chamber EDC.
 
Adopt-an-Airman will attempt to match Airmen with a host family who share the same basic interests and characteristics, such as sports, hobbies, religion, and other activities with which they identify.
