Eagle Ranch

Houseparent Couple

Eagle Ranch
Flowery Branch, Georgia, United States


Date Posted: 01/16/2008
Categories: House Parent
Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
Eagle Ranch always wants to hear from couples who might be interested in becoming houseparents at Eagle Ranch. Houseparent couples tend to stay at the Ranch for three to five years (which far exceeds the national average tenure of eight months). However, because there are eight childrens homes on our campus to be staffed, we have, on average, two openings for houseparent couples every year.

There are two ways you can serve our children in this role--either as full-time houseparents or respite houseparents.

Houseparents provide care, nurturing and structure for up to seven children and are employed full-time in this position. They are supported by an Assistant Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor. To be considered, couples must be married at least 3 years and have no more than 2 children living at home.

Respite Houseparents may be asked to stand in for a Houseparent couple who must be away from the Ranch for a family emergency or while we are waiting for new full-time Houseparents to begin their tenure. Respite Houseparents receive full training and keep their full-time jobs outside the Ranch. Couples with up to 3 children of their own living at home may be considered for this position
