Collin House – House Manager
Collin House is a short-term residential program provided by Embrace to house children in foster care without placement. The children and teens served by Collin House arrive from a variety of unsafe or traumatic situations. Some may even arrive directly from inpatient psychiatric services or from foster placements that have broken down. Our top priority is the eventual placement of children in the love and stability of a forever family. Children in the whirlwind of loss, grief, and trauma need stability and time to heal before successful placement in a family can take place. Collin House creates an intentional pause in the placement process to diffuse the emergency mind-set, and make more intentional placement decisions. Success of this initial placement can change the trajectory of a child’s life. Volunteers from local congregations commit to be a part of the Collin House “family” by preparing meals with children, helping with schoolwork, aiding with college or work applications, and leading enrichment/holiday activities. Children attend local public schools and are supervised by Child Protective Services staff.
The Collin House Manager is a dynamic, energetic, self-driven individual passionate about creating a safer community for children. He/She should be an excellent communicator who can build and nurture relationships with CPS staff, volunteers, vendors, and community partners. The House Manager should be detailed oriented and capable of assessing physical and organizational needs of Collin House. Most importantly, the House Manager has a genuine desire to be part of a dynamic ministry team making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children according to the Biblical mandate of James 1:27. Whether taking inventory of the pantry or welcoming new volunteers, Embrace’s corporate system of goal setting and accountability helps us see the Kingdom impact of tasks both small and large.
