Exchange Student Hosting - deductions other than cash

TurboTax Deluxe seems to be missing the option of "deductions other than cash" where I normally enter our hosting deduction with an exchange student hosting organization. We received a letter (as every year) stating the program's tax ID and telling us to go to Schedule A under Charitable Deductions other than cash,  and annotate "Sec. 170(g) deduction" but I don't see the other than cash deduction area anywhere. Last time we hosted we also used TurboTax but this year's Deluxe version seems to be missing this piece. Please help; thanks!
