We are looking for a couple to serve as House Parents at our Christian home for boys. The couple will need to be married for at least five years, each have a high school diploma or equivalent, and be active in a church. The couple needs to have a desire to want to help children that may have emotional and/or behavior issues. Duties include but are not limited to: *Care for the needs of the children entrusted to your care, including physical, spiritual, emotional, and acadmic *Provide meals *Get the children to school and activities on time *Keep the home clean and organized *Keep academic and medical records updated and organized *Work with counselors and social workers regarding the emotional needs of the children *Encourage the children with academics and extracurricular activities *Join a local church and get the children involved with age-appropriate activities *Help the children learn how to do household chores such as cooking, laundry, cleaning, shopping, managing money, etc We want them to know how to survive in the real world! *Attend court with the children when needed *Love the boys all the same and understand that some of the boys will not be easy House Parents should have a positive attitude and outlook on life. They must be willing to work alongside our Board of Directors, the Department of Human Services, and sometimes the parents/families of the children The House Parents will receive a salary as well as free housing. The ministry pays all the expenses for the home (insurance, utilities, groceries, etc.) Serving as house parents is a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children who have not had a great life so far. While this job will be tough in many areas, it will also be very rewarding!
