Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
Olive Crest is a national leader in the Prevention, Treatment and Education of child abuse.
We have been serving children and their families throughout Southern California, Washington and Nevada for more than 30 years.

If you are looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of at-risk children and youth, Olive Crest is seeking Safe Family Parents to provide a stable home environment for at-risk children and youth at our Children’s Ranch in Coachella, CA. Safe Family Parents live onsite and are responsible for meeting the emotional, physical, material and spiritual needs of the children. Each home can accommodate up to six children and children are placed for anywhere from a few days to one year.

Minimal requirements for both parents:
• Be married for at least one year
• Ability to accept and integrate children into the family
• Exhibit quality relationships with spouse and own children as applicable
• Ability to meet the physical requirements of adequately caring for children
• Criminal Record Clearance and good driving record required

Although this is a Volunteer position, we do provide paid housing and utilities (some limitations apply) in one of our beautiful new homes at the Children’s Center, as well as reimbursement for food, supplies, clothing and other household expenses of up to $1200 per month. There is an additional reimbursement of up to $500 per month to meet the needs of each placed child.

One parent should be available as a stay at home parent; the other should be able to obtain at least nominal outside employment for personal expenses not covered by the program (depending on qualifications and current openings, there may be a possibility of employment with our charter school located near the Children’s Center ). Families with children and pets will be considered; however, in order to allow adequate space for program children, typically we will only consider families with two or less children at home.
