Adopt An Airman

The Welcome Home to Hampton program is designed to provide Airmen with an avenue to form new friendships in the local community and gather support beyond the formal work environment. If you can remember when you first left behind the comfort and security of your parents’ home, then you will understand the needs of the young men and women in the Welcome Home to Hampton program. Rigorous military standards can tax even the most robust of spirits, producing feelings of great stress to make the grade in some Airmen; and in others, moments of loneliness, homesickness and doubt. As a host family, you provide a home-away-from-home during an Airman’s first years at Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE). You serve as the Airman’s mentor, friend, and advisor, providing a caring environment to relax, away from the pressures of work and future deployments. You are also in the position to serve as a positive adult role model in helping Airmen understand their role as career Air Force Airmen and reinforcing positive social values.
