Foster Home Parents

Engage your passion for service, help young people change their lives, and get ahead financially!

Houseparents of at-risk teens in the Community Service Foundation (CSF) foster care program 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. Foster youth may attend CSF Buxmont Academy schools from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, year round.

Live expense free, with paid living expenses, benefits and regular time off, in one of our four beautiful suburban homes in lovely neighborhoods.
Receive a full-time salary for one houseparent and a part-time salary for another, who can hold another job.
Receive extensive, ongoing training and support to develop your skills in working with youth.

Houseparents enjoy a network of support. You will be part of a team, including counseling and school staff, that utilizes a holistic restorative practices philosophy. Using talking circles and other informal techniques, restorative practices engage youth to help them make positive changes they need to succeed. This approach allows us to build rapport among teens and staff and address wrongdoing, when it occurs, as an opportunity for learning and growth.

Many houseparents have a background or interest in counseling, education, social work, juvenile probation, teaching and faith communities. There is no degree requirement, but you must be at least 21 and possess a clear criminal check, child abuse clearance and a current driver’s license. Email :
