Welcome to Diablo Valley Homestay!

Diablo Valley Homestay provides international students at Diablo Valley College, Contra Costa College and Los Medanos College with a safe, high quality and culturally enrichening host family living experience matched to students’ needs and preferences at a reasonable cost. Having a “home away from home” is reassuring for parents and rewarding for our students. Such an environment also helps students in their academic and personal adjustment to college life in the U.S.
