Our Team

We would like to open more satellite Homes (homes in the community – like shining stars!) and are now looking for some really special people to join our team in caring for children. Ideally you will have had experience working with children and be willing to open your home to either a child or small sibling group. We provide excellent support in the form of an allowance, supervision, and ongoing training and support, including a 24/7 on call emergency service..

You will be part of our close-knit team as we celebrate milestones and help to heal hurt children together.
Please send your CV, motivation and EOI to office@homesofhope.org.nz.
We look forward to hearing from you!
