OVERVIEW:

Children who have been removed from their homes and families need kindness, compassion and special care. Methodist Home for Children offers traditional foster care, emergency foster care, as well as therapeutic foster care. Because of the abuse, neglect, or abandonment they have suffered, most of the children who come to us have a range of emotional and behavioral challenges.

Our primary goal in foster care is to help young people make the transition into permanent homes. Whenever possible, we help young people reunite with their birth families. When this is not possible, we help these young people find permanent homes with families who wish to adopt.

The children we care for range in age from newborn to 18 years. We provide our foster parents with 30+ hours of training and lots of support as they prepare to become licensed. After our foster parents have a child placed with them, our foster care specialists provide round-the-clock support and consultation.

We are in search of a Foster Care Licensing Supervisor for our Foster Care division.
