About The Opportunity
This role is about providing a safe, nurturing home to a youth in need, giving them a sense of belonging and assisting them to be more successful. It is radically different to the traditional foster care model, primarily due to the level of support and supervision provided to the home.
A Truly Unique Job
Make A Difference
Help a youth with their day-to-day needs, to learn life-skills and to see what’s possible.
We will equip you with all the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in this role. You will have support available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Choose to do the role full-time or to provide short-term cover for other families.
Strong Team Culture
Become an integral part of a dedicated team that works to support youth in need to grow and thrive.
Work from Home
Do meaningful work without leaving the comfort of your home. If you have any necessary improvements or adjustments needed for you home, we offer $1,000 to cover these costs.
Our foster families and caregivers can earn from $4,800 to $10,000 per month.
“The common thread we’ve heard from kids is that they had no idea what a real family was until they came to our home. Everything you do with them has an impact. Even just sitting down and having a dinner with them teaches them something.”
“I do this role because I believe every youth has a right to be loved and nurtured and to feel safe. Some of these kids have never experienced any of these things.”
“I feel such a joy when the youth finds success. Knowing that you have helped make this possible fills you with such a sense of worth. Their comfort and confidence grows each day they are with you. It is wonderful to watch them open up as they learn to trust you.”
“When you are working with a youth for months at a time you may not notice them changing. Then, one day, you see them doing the things you have been trying to teach them. They show more patience for example.”
