FEATURED JOB OPENING: Primary and Relief Houseparent Couple - Waleska, GA

Posted: 5/9/2020 - 7:03 am

Goshen Valley is currently seeking mission-minded married couples who feel called to ministering to youth in a residential setting. 

Goshen Valley Boys Ranch of Waleska, GA, situated on a 160 acre, wooded ranch in the beautiful North Georgia foothills, has been providing a quality environment for youth in foster care for over 20 years.  We focus on spiritual growth, recreation, education, and independent living skills.   Our Houseparents receive full time room and board, including during time off; and enjoy competitive salaries with fully paid health/dental/vision benefits. 

Houseparents are the heroes of the Ranch.  While most group homes employ shift workers, our proven model focuses on creating an environment that feels as much like family as possible.   As a Houseparent at Goshen Valley,  you are the center of a team focused on ministering to 6-8 boys between the ages of 8-18.  You help achieve the mission of “Peace and Purpose” by creating a home environment that feels like family…not an institution.

At Goshen, a comprehensive support system surrounds you: 

  • An Academic Coordinator enrolls/withdraws children from school, advocates for special educational needs, and attends school meetings.
  • A Case Manager communicates with Court/DFCS, transports children to all DFCS/court related meetings, and schedules/supervises family visits.
  • A Medical Coordinator provides first aid and medical consultation, schedules medical and dental visits, transports to medical and dental appointments, and picks up prescription medication.
  • An Activities Director facilitates community and on-campus activities.
  • Additional support staff assist with transportation, supervision, homework, and more.

We know that for our children to succeed, we need our Houseparents and staff to succeed.  We won’t promise you the easiest job in the world…but we will promise you the rewards are worth it!  We invite you to see the Goshen difference and investigate how you can join in our mission of “Peace and Purpose.”
