Houseparents at Milton Hershey School significantly impact the lives of our students. Because houseparents work so closely with students, houseparents are important role models, teaching students life lessons and core values. Read the blogs of our houseparents and hear directly from the caring couples who continue to support and nurture our students to learn, grow and achieve to lead successful lives at MHS and beyond.
