White’s is looking to fill houseparent positions at our campus in Wabash, Ind.
As a houseparent, you will have the opportunity to impact the lives of at-risk children and teens who are in need of guidance, support and love. If your calling in life is to put your talents and passions to work in a way that positively impacts families in crisis, then serving at White’s might be the place for you.
Our continuum of care offers the chance for hurting children — no matter their age, background, or situation — to receive the care, treatment, structure and counseling they need to experience healing.
“I often think that my job as a houseparent has taught me so much more than I can give to the program. It has been such a privilege to work with the students who have come through this program and I look forward to serving many more. I am forever grateful for the opportunity I have been given to work with the great people here,” said a current houseparent.
Houseparents can help kids learn to function in a home-like setting, by example and teaching. Houseparents can offer: healthy values, a safe and secure structured environment, and opportunities for relationship building. Houseparents will work as a full member of a treatment team for a cottage of residents.
Aside from the daily responsibilities of providing clear rules, coordinating daily routines and supervising activities, counseling students and parents, engaging in conflict resolution and more, houseparents should also be committed to our mission, vision and values. White’s is dedicated to enriching the lives of struggling children, teens and their families and our houseparents should be committed to that same mission.
White’s prides itself on being more than just a place to work – it’s an organization where employees can grow in their careers and faith while contributing to the restoration of families and children in need.
