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.

Orientation Provided

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.

Flexible Work

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.

At a minimum you must...

  • Be over 21 years of age.
  • Be legally eligible to work in Canada.
  • Be financially stable.
  • Be able to provide each youth with his or her own bedroom.
  • Be able to provide three references.
  • Provide a medical report from your doctor.
  • Have no more than five children/youth living in the home.
  • Have no international students or clients from other agencies living in the home.

Are You Sure You Are Looking For Me?

The people that choose to take on this role come from a wide range of backgrounds and skill levels. They, and their families, do not conform to any ‘standard’. What you do need is an enthusiasm to work with young people, to be easy to talk to and a desire to make a difference.

“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.”
