Oblong Children’s Christian Home is seeking a mature Christian married couple to minister to up to 8 youth at a satellite facility in Fairfield IL. Houseparents are professionals who work as a team with the counselor/case worker, and executive director to provide an environment where God changes the lives of youth and their families. For a complete list of qualifications and responsibilities see the Home’s website at WWW.oblongchristianhome.org
The Oblong Children’s Christian Home offers a competitive pay package, retirement contribution and fully pays health insurance for the houseparent couple. Housing, food and utilities are provided. Houseparents receive five days per month off and vacation and time.
The Fairfield home is a satellite facility of the Oblong Children’s Christian Home located just 65 miles from the Fairfield home. Girls come to the home because of issues such as minor delinquency, truancy, rebellion, attachment issues and/or because of family issues such as parental health issues, lack of parenting skills, and parental drug addiction
The Fairfield home provides a stable Christian family home for girls between the ages of 6 and 17 at placement. Houseparents provide unconditional love and guidance. The youth also participate in counseling and a therapeutic horsemanship program. The houseparents and youth in their care can attend one of several local Christian Churches or Churches of Christ in the community.
The goal for most children is return home when both the child and the parents are prepared for successful reunification. If return home is not possible, the home assists the youths until they are prepared for independent living. The ultimate goal is to prepare the young person for a life of Christian living and for eternity.
The home has excellent facilities and enjoys a sound financial base of church and individual support without accepting State and Federal money.
