Professional Foster Parents (Teaching Parents), Christian Heritage, Lincoln, NE
Christian Heritage, a faith based ministry, is seeking Teaching Parents with residential or group homes experience to live in one of our homes on campus and provide Professional Foster Care. The ideal family will have at least 2 years of group home experience caring for 6-8 youth in their home. Christian Heritage transitioned 6 of our group homes into Professional Foster Homes and has experienced great success in achieving a healthy family environment for both the foster parents and the youth we serve. This is a sub-contract with your family, where you will care for 4-6 foster children (10-18 yrs. of age), with one parent having the opportunity to work outside the home if you so desire. Compensation will range from $32,000 to $54,000 -- based on the number of youth for whom you choose to care. Each of the foster children in your home will attend public school in the community, as Christian Heritage works to restore the family and transition each of the children to living again with their family of origin. The agency-based foster care model provides you with 24/7 support and consultation. Your family will have the opportunity to review background information of youth being referred for placement and you will be involved in the placement decision.
Qualifications: The ideal family will have at least 2 years of residential or group home experience caring for 6-8 youth in their home.
