- young couples working to pay off college debt or save for their first home;
- middle-aged couples who want to launch a second career in social services;
- and empty-nesters who want another chance to put their parenting skills to good use.
Apply to become houseparents to at-risk teens with the Community Service Foundation (CSF) foster care program, in eastern Pennsylvania. CSF’s houseparents come from many backgrounds and locations around the U.S., but they all share the desire to work with young people. As one CSF houseparent put it: “You get back so much more than you give!”
CSF foster parents:
- live expense free, with paid living expenses and benefits and regular time off, in one of four beautiful suburban homes in lovely neighborhoods, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
- receive a full-time salary for one houseparent and a part-time salary for another, who can hold another job.
- provide care and supervision to a maximum of 6 boys or girls, ages 12 to 18, who are court ordered into the care of CSF due to behavior or family problems. (All foster youth attend CSF schools from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, year round.)
- receive extensive, ongoing training and support from CSF in how to be a restorative houseparent.
- are at least 21 and possess a clear criminal check, child abuse clearance and a current driver’s license.
