Houseparent

For fifty years Calvary Children’s Home has provided long-term residential care for children needing placement apart from their families in a distinctly Christian setting. Our mission is to help these children reach their full potential in their personal, spiritual and relational lives. At the center of this mission and its success is our houseparent team.

Calvary is currently seeking a mission-minded, married couple for this role. This couple will guide the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual development of approximately 7-10 children in a cottage setting. Calvary is a faith-based home on 15 beautiful acres in Powder Springs, GA. We have three cottages currently housing 24 children. Houseparents must have a minimum of a high school diploma with a bachelors degree preferred. Houseparents work on a “10 days on, 4 days off” schedule in the cottages. Off-duty housing is provided in a separate home on campus. Calvary does not have accommodations for indoor pets.

Relief Houseparent

The role of a relief Houseparent is, in every aspect, as vital to the safety and well being of our children as the primary Houseparent. The relief Houseparent provides continuity of care while allowing the primary Houseparent a few days to relax and enjoy time with their individual family.

Every 10 days our Houseparents are awarded 4 days off.  To provide this we require relief Houseparents to step into the cottages and the lives of our children.   This allows for much needed time off for our full-time Houseparents.

Relief Houseparents will move into the cottages for 4 days to provide the necessary nurturing required by our children, thus allowing much needed time off for our full-time Houseparents.

Those holding the relief position will meet the same criteria and abide by the same standard as applicable to all childcare staff.

Requirements:

  • At least 21 years of age.
  • High School Education, or equivalent.
  • Able to pass a necessary background check.
  • People of high moral standards and strong spiritual values.

Responsibilities:

  • Maintaining a cottage on campus for themselves, their family and the children entrusted to their care. The houseparent role includes cooking, cleaning, laundry, general maintenance, and parenting.
  • Helping in the development of the foundation for each child based on Christian beliefs, continual spiritual growth consistent with Calvary’s doctrinal statements, a clearly defined focus on the value of education and educational goals, leading by example to show the value of a strong work ethic, and providing an example of Godly and healthy family relationships.

  • Helping each child develop a personal trust in God, a respect for the rights and property of others and designing a life plan allowing them to reach their fullest potential.
