Acres of Hope is a spiritually based renewal center serving homeless women with children by providing them with a home and an environment of structured programming. Located in the beautiful Sierra Foothills, Acres of Hope’s unique approach allows residents to live onsite for up to two years while staff and volunteers invest heavily in their lives by providing encouragement, practical life-skills training, job skills, mentoring and spiritual direction.

Current Openings

Children’s Program Coordinator

The Children’s Program Coordinator organizes and supervises the trauma-informed child care program at Acres of Hope, a faith-based, residential renewal center. The primary goal of our childcare program is to give children a safe place to heal and learn the social-emotional skills they will need to be successful in life. The coordinator engages daily with children who have experienced trauma to assess their ongoing needs and carry out individualized plans to support their recovery and development. This coordinator also recruits, trains, and supervises volunteers and interns. The coordinator must be comfortable playing on the floor, getting messy, having structure yet staying flexible, taking risks, and learning the Theraplay approach to healing.

Family Services Specialist

The Family Services Specialist will provide supervision and oversight of the campus and services provided to our residents (women and children) through counsel, coaching, mentoring, and role modeling. The Family Services Specialist will assist residents to understand and follow Acres of Hope’s policies and guidelines, provide child care and parenting assistance, and ensure the safety and security of the campus.

Our Culture

All positions at Acres of Hope require mature Christians who are faithful in their Christian walk. We pray about every vacancy and trust God to show us the right applicant for the right position. While education and experience are vital, we also consider a person’s heart for service and whether or not he/she would fit into our culture.

Employee Benefits

Qualified positions receive paid sick leave, vacation leave, 401k plan, and a paid dental insurance plan. Qualification is based on the number of regularly scheduled hours per week for each position. For some benefits 32 hours per week is considered full time. Placer Family Housing does not offer a medical health insurance plan.
