Job Description:

Houseparents have a wide-ranging list of job responsibilities. Houseparents act as a parent-like figure, with all of the duties and responsibilities that being a parent entails. This would include assisting in daily operational duties to maintain and care for the residence home, providing spiritual guidance, providing transportation for the children to appointments, activities, and church, supervising the completion of chores, homework or other responsibilities, meeting with classroom teachers to discuss the children under their care, and taking children on activities.

Because houseparents work with children, they are required to pass extensive background checks, which include a medical examination, FBI background checks, and local police background checks. Houseparents need to demonstrate a proven track record in working with and assisting children, particularly at-risk children. Currently, Hope Children's Home is only seeking married individuals to fulfill the houseparent position. Both spouses will be hired to work together in a home and need to demonstrate the stability and longevity of their relationship.

Because Hope Children's Home offers round-the-clock care for children, Cottage Parents may work atypical schedules. Currently, Cottage Parents work a 6/1 schedule (6 days on, 1 day off).

Medical insurance at no cost to employee (currently Blue Cross/Blue Shield), dental insurance at no cost to employee, housing and utilities included, meals, relocation assistance, 401(k) with 4% match.
