Youth Care in Your Home

Do you love working with youth? Do you have a desire to make a difference? If so, we want to hear from you!

We are looking for individuals willing to open their home and their hearts to youth in need.   

We offer an extensive orientation process that ensures you are prepared, and once you join us we will have support available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. In this role, you can also access additional training opportunities to further develop your skills in providing assistance to others in need.

Our model of providing specialized residential care is to provide young people with a safe, nurturing and healthy family home environment coupled with one-to-one support. It is radically different to the traditional foster care model, primarily due to the level of support and supervision provided to the family home.

We have youth family caregiver opportunities (full-time and respite) throughout the Lower Mainland. We are in vital need of families in the Coquitlam, Surrey, North Shore and Vancouver areas. We are also interested in applicants willing to relocate to these areas.

Our Youth Family Caregivers come from a range of backgrounds and skill levels.  They do not confirm to any standard.  What they do share is an enthusiasm to work with youth, a desire to make a difference and an enjoyment of being part of a dedicated team.
