Position Description: Jill's House Fellowship
Are you about to graduate college with a Nursing, Social Work or Special Education degree? Do you feel a particular call from God to work with children with special needs and to love them as Jesus does? Jill’s House would love to talk with you!
What is Jill’s House?
Jill’s House is a Christian organization, located in the Washington D.C. area, providing care to children with intellectual disabilities and their families. Families who care for children who are on the autism spectrum, have Down syndrome, or have brain injuries, need a break from time to time. But – given the needs of their children – they cannot just call a babysitter. Jill’s House provides a “respite resort” – filled with a pool, sensory rooms, 45 beds, a gym, a computer lab, a music room, and art room, a library and more. By providing excellent overnight care, we give parents a day off and children a day to remember. We serve children, ages six through seventeen. Our mission is to be a fun, safe haven to which parents can entrust their children, allowing the parents a time of rest.
We believe that parents of children with disabilities need more support. Our hope is that our model will help change the way communities address the needs of families with children with special needs.
What is the program?
The Jill’s House Fellowship lasts one year, beginning in June, and is a paid full-time job. You live and work with other godly people committed to serving children with special needs. Through our program you will get to care for children with a wide array of disabilities. You will gain hands-on experience and deepen your walk by working with these children and living in intentional community. You receive compensation, benefits, and housing during the year of the program. Our goal is to help develop a generation of professionals who love Christ and are world-class at caring for children with special needs.
What are we looking for?
Jill’s House is looking for high-energy, passionate people with a heart for special needs and training in Nursing, Social Work, or Special Education, ready to serve with us for one year
