About Us

HanUSA Homestay is a U.S. based organization with the sole purpose of educational and cultural exchange between students and families of
both continents.  Asian families prize the education and enhanced English skills their students will acquire in the U.S.  American families will
enjoy the cultural experience of hosting an Asian student in their home and be compensated financially.

The founders, Patrick and Denise Bostwick took a South Korean Foreign Exchange student into their home early in their marriage.  Denise is
Korean and was adopted as a toddler into an American family in the Dallas Metroplex area.  Patrick was born and raised in Lubbock, TX.  
Together, they embarked on a journey to familiarize themselves with the South Korean culture and language to better educate their own
children on their heritage.  They now have
three children; two boys, Jaeke (Jay-Kee) 7 y/o, Aaron 5 y/o and a girl, Nari (Na-Ree) 3 y/o.

Patrick Bostwick served for 6 years in the U.S. Navy Reserve as an Intelligence Specialist.  He graduated from Wayland Baptist University with
a BSOE in Criminal Justice and worked as a Police Officer for 9.5 years.   Mr. Bostwick worked in the technology industry for Tyler
Technologies for over 1
3 years.  

Denise Bostwick completed her certification in Court Reporting and worked as a Court Reporter for 5 years.  Mrs. Bostwick later went to work
for Tyler Technologies also and worked there for
10 years.  

Our organization has placed a number of students
across the U.S. with outstanding experiences and results for both the students and families.
