Being a Homeparent
Our mission at Methodist Children’s Home is to offer hope to children, youth and families through a nurturing, Christian community. Homeparents have an important role as part of this mission as they care for and supervise youth in placement and implement the MCH model of care in the group home.
Homeparents exhibit the intellectual and emotional maturity required to work with youth who come from the hard place of life. Some youth in our care struggle with issues related to developmental delays, mental health needs and trauma. Homeparents show respect and compassionate understanding for the youth and the ability to balance the need for nurture and structure as they work with the youth.
Throughout our history, we have been blessed with resources that have enabled us to provide the highest quality of care and facilities for children and youth. Today, MCH serves children and youth through residential programs on the Waco campus and Boys Ranch, transition services, and a variety of in-home and community based services through MCH Family Outreach offices throughout Texas and New Mexico.
God has expanded this ministry through the vision and leadership of current and former administrators and benefactors who have enabled MCH to become one of the leading childcare agencies in the United States.
Join our ministry in making a difference in the lives of children and youth. MCH offers excellent benefits including competitive pay, health insurance and a 401K. Salary base rate for homeparents is $29,300 each. Full-time homeparent couples work seven days on and seven days off under the supervision of the Home Life Manager.
