Job Description:
The mission of Kleos Children's Community located near Klamath Falls, Oregon on the beautiful Williamson River, is one of prevention, redemption, preservation, conservation, and rehabilitation of both child and family including single moms and their children. Our efforts include the expression of love, wisdom and education, with emphasis on constructive attitudes toward problems, and the intellectual and spiritual growth of children towards mature manhood and womanhood.

Kleos Children's Community also provides a residential program designed to reunite single mothers with their children who have been taken into foster care. This program is designed to be a "hand up" rather than a "hand out".

Since 1988, Kleos Children's Community has been working to protect children in need by providing homes, and loving care. We serve both male and female children, from birth through 18 years old, who have been abused, neglected, troubled, or at risk youth.

Kleos Children's Community seeks to teach the art of effective daily living to troubled children. Residents often come with little ability to build meaningful relationships, control impulses, achieve academically, or form responsible moral codes. Our goal is to treat the whole person and prepare him or her for productive adulthood.
