Inner Hope is a diverse and welcoming community made up of East Vancouver youth and families, and a dynamic team of staff and volunteers who are passionate about long-term relationships. We are seeking a dynamic couple to fill the role of House Parents for Inner Hope’s housing program. This is a live-in ministry opportunity for a married couple who are called to a full-life integration approach to ministry with at-risk youth. If you are passionate about inner-city missions, if your values inspire you to walk alongside a vulnerable population, you will thrive in this role!
Our House Parents reside in The Home and foster a family-style environment for up to four residents aged 16-24, managing daily house life and building meaningful relationships with youth and their families. The Home is designed for long-term growth in residents, and we ask House Parents to commit to at least two years in their role.
Youth who apply to live in The Home are seeking structure, support and accountability in their lives, ideally over a long-term stay. In a substance-free environment shaped by Christian values, the House Parent couple models a healthy relationship and offers residents love, support, and discipleship. It can also be a second home and safe haven for past residents, friends, and family; House Parents nurture this sense of belonging through special events each year.
