Become a Shelter Home Parent
Serenity Homes is actively seeking kind caregivers to become shelter home parents, opening their home to provide temporary, short-term care for a child or a sibling group or a pregnant teen. Shelter home parents play an important role in:

  1. Caring for young children

  2. Keeping teen moms together with their babies

  3. Keeping sibling groups together while we work on a plan to reunite the children with their family
