King’s Home, a Christ-centered ministry in existence for over 40 years located in Shelby County seeking to hire Family Teaching Parent couples who want to provide a safe, stable home like environment for youth and to model and serve the youth entrusted in our care. The youth we serve have been removed from their biological families due to abuse and or neglect. King’s Home provides comprehensive counseling services for individual and families, including equine therapy, art classes and farm and garden experiences to help the youth heal from traumatic events.
Family Teaching Parent(s), when hired, work only this job. Our Family Teaching Parent(s) live in a built in apartment in the home which they are assigned. You do not move out of the apartment on days off. Each of our homes will serve up to eight youth, ages 10 – 18. Each home has a 15 passenger van and a smaller vehicle assigned for transporting youth. The Family Teaching Parent(s) are responsible for taking youth to doctor’s appointments, handling school issues, etc, just as you would with your own children. Youth attend public schools. Family Teaching Parents are constantly teaching basic living skills to the youth utilizing our Family Teaching Parent Model. An Assistant and night staff are assigned to our homes.
Family Teaching Parents are hired as a couple, but earn benefits separately. Our benefit package includes Blue Cross and Blue Shield health and dental insurance (paid entirely for the family by the ministry), generous earned vacation and personal time, short/long term disability paid for by the ministry, SIMPLE IRA for retirement after one year of employment, paid housing, utilities, internet, and cable.
