* House Parent Couple: Lyndsey’s Place Teen Mom Program
We are currently launching a new program/home for teen moms called Lyndsey's Place Teen Mom Teaching Family Program. This home works with teen mothers and their child(ren), teaching them how to successfully function as single mothers while still accomplishing their personal goals through the power of Jesus Christ. Our motto is to teach to everything, thus our Teen Parent Program functions as a teaching home where our residents learn life skills, participate in cooking classes, financial responsibility workshops, grocery budgeting, job skills, parenting classes, therapeutic services, and more. Lyndsey's Place is an eight bedroom home situated in a residential neighborhood in Mercer County Pennsylvania and will be licensed as a supportive foster home. Our home will be lead by a ministry couple who walks with and guides our teen moms through this season of learning and change.
The House Parent Couple (HPC) plays a pivotal role of rebuilding the concept of trust, safety and stable relationships for the girls who enter our program. We are looking for a full time missionary minded couple to run the weekly program. We follow a 12/2 schedule. (Weekends off every other week.) We also offer a bi-weekly date nights where the HPC is off duty for 3 hours one evening every other week.
Our program encompasses life skills, job training, Christian therapeutic group coaching, horse therapy, biblical teaching and much more. While we partner with various professionals to get these services to our residents, the HPC plays a pivotal role in ensuring the residents successfully follow the program.
We are looking for a strong, biblically sound couple. Our ideal couple has been married for at least 3 years, has a true relationship with Jesus Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit and has experience in outreach ministry together.
We expect the female house-Parent to run the majority of the program (case management , mentoring and teaching) with the girls. The husband may work outside the home during day hours, but is expected to demonstrate exceptional Godly character and set an example for what female/male interaction should look like while in the home.
