Soaring Wings Christian Home and Ranch is seeking to hire a Christian husband and wife to serve as long-term houseparents.
Soaring Wings is a Christ-centered foster care community, family and home providing security, love and hope for children who – through no fault of their own – need a chance. SWR is committed to being a home and family for as long as the children need them.
We welcomed our first children in August of 2007. We currently have homes for girls and boys, and we are expanding to open an infant/preschool home in late 2016. Soaring Wings is located 15 minutes northeast of Conway, Arkansas on 195 beautiful acres.
Applicants must have a high school diploma, must have been married for at least 5 years, be active in a local church during their time at SWR, and have no more than two school-age children living at home.

*Cooking meals nightly and on weekends
*Transporting children to school and to appointments
*Keeping the home clean and well-kept
*Keeping monthly budget and financial report

*Encourage the children in extracurricular activities.
*Join a local church and involve children in age appropriate church activities.

Houseparents should have a positive attitude and outlook on life. They must be willing to follow the policies and procedures of the Ranch and work with all staff members to ensure the highest level of care is being provided for the children. Houseparents must agree with the Statement of Faith of the Ranch. Applicants must have minimal personal debt.
