Willingness to live with adolescents and work with a therapeutic team of Christian professionals. 4. At least 21 years of age and in possession of a valid driver’s license.
  • DUTIES:ADVENT GROUP MINISTRIES is a team of Christians with a mission of bringing hope, healing, and Christ’s love to hurting children and their families. We provide personal care through a professional staff of counselors and social workers and a network of well-trained volunteers. Our purpose is to meet the needs of troubled and abused youth and adults through Christian love and therapeutic services. The Resident Childcare Worker opening is a live-in position responsible for the overall care and supervision of six behaviorally/emotionally disturbed and/or chemically dependent adolescents. This job is ideal for someone who has majored in one of the social sciences, or simply has a heart to help hurting youth. Staff implement an individualized treatment plan for each youth while living with the adolescents 4 days a week. This is done within the context of an interdependent staff treatment team. We recognize that the needs of each client are unique; thus, the focus of the Advent programs is individualized treatment. These needs may include the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, or a unique combination of them all.

At Advent the challenges are very real and we meet the challenges head on. Advent cares for teens who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. The majority of these young people are in trouble with the law. They come from abusive homes…from the streets.

  • DUTIES:ADVENT GROUP MINISTRIES is a team of Christians with a mission of bringing hope, healing, and Christ’s love to hurting children and their families. We provide personal care through a professional staff of counselors and social workers and a network of well-trained volunteers. Our purpose is to meet the needs of troubled and abused youth and adults through Christian love and therapeutic services. The Resident Childcare Worker opening is a live-in position responsible for the overall care and supervision of six behaviorally/emotionally disturbed and/or chemically dependent adolescents. This job is ideal for someone who has majored in one of the social sciences, or simply has a heart to help hurting youth. Staff implement an individualized treatment plan for each youth while living with the adolescents 4 days a week. This is done within the context of an interdependent staff treatment team. We recognize that the needs of each client are unique; thus, the focus of the Advent programs is individualized treatment. These needs may include the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, or a unique combination of them all. Though the agency, as a whole, strives to meet these wide-ranging essentials, each department focuses on providing treatment for one or two particular needs. Are you ready for a challenge?

Willingness to live with adolescents and work with a therapeutic team of Christian professionals. 4. At least 21 years of age and in possession of a valid driver’s license.
  • DUTIES:ADVENT GROUP MINISTRIES is a team of Christians with a mission of bringing hope, healing, and Christ’s love to hurting children and their families. We provide personal care through a professional staff of counselors and social workers and a network of well-trained volunteers. Our purpose is to meet the needs of troubled and abused youth and adults through Christian love and therapeutic services. The Resident Childcare Worker opening is a live-in position responsible for the overall care and supervision of six behaviorally/emotionally disturbed and/or chemically dependent adolescents. This job is ideal for someone who has majored in one of the social sciences, or simply has a heart to help hurting youth. Staff implement an individualized treatment plan for each youth while living with the adolescents 4 days a week. This is done within the context of an interdependent staff treatment team. We recognize that the needs of each client are unique; thus, the focus of the Advent programs is individualized treatment. These needs may include the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, or a unique combination of them all. Though the agency, as a whole, strives to meet these wide-ranging essentials, each department focuses on providing treatment for one or two particular needs. Are you ready for a challenge? At Advent the challenges are very real and we meet the challenges head on. Advent cares for teens who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. The majority of these young people are in trouble with the law. They come from abusive homes…from the streets. They are deeply wounded young people; rejected by virtually everyone in their lives, written off by society, they’ve been let down, pushed aside by those who should have cared the most. Advent may be their last chance to figure life out and get it together. The position includes room and board, and benefits that include salary, medical, and paid vacation and holidays.
