Staff Opening Details


Cottage Parents

Overview:

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 entail. 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.

Requirements:

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.

Scheduling:

Because Hope Children’s Home offers round-the-clock care for children, houseparents may work atypical schedules. Schedules will vary depending on whether staffing a Dormitory or Cottage.

Staff members hired by Hope Children’s Home must be dedicated to maintaining and instilling these same values in the children it cares for.  All Hope Children’s Home employees must be born-again Christians and agree with our Mission StatementDoctrinal Beliefs, and Staff Commitments. Additionally, staff members are hired based on professional and educational credentials, demonstrated experience, and Christian testimony.

    Could you please clarify as to whether each of these positions is full-time or part-time and what the hours are for each, as I did not see it in any of the job descriptions above.

    Thank you,
    Barbara Nelson
