Positions Available, Full and Part-time

The Lukas Community, a small residential community, located in beautiful rural Temple, NH is looking for caring, responsible adults who – as house parents in one of our extended -family households, or as single co-workers – find meaning and fulfillment in sharing their lives and daily work with individuals in need of special care.

We strive to provide a supportive environment in which each individual can unfold their special gifts while we try to meet their particular needs by creating a rich therapeutic environment including activities such as gardening, animal care, crafts, cooking, music and movement, to name just a few. Previous experience would be welcome but is not a requirement. Accommodation and food from our own organic garden will be provided along with a monthly stipend, health benefits, tuition aid for parents with school aged children, and 4 – 6 weeks of vacation per year.

If you are interested to learn more about us, view our website www.lukascommunity.org. For questions and further information, please contact Kristen Stanton: lukas@community.org. or call the office at (603) 878-4796.

We’re also looking for part time people to come a few days a week to help as our residents grow older. Perfect for retired teachers and nurses, and for parents whose children are in school. Please let people know we are looking!

Thank you!
