Why Become a Houseparent?
Milton Hershey School employs more than 200 houseparent couples that live on campus full time. Houseparent couples live in a private apartment connected to a student home where they care for a small group of students over several years. It’s an inclusive, diverse work community with special houseparent social events and trainings, and a built-in support system.
MHS offers a generous total compensation package of approximately $150,000, including housing, groceries, utilities, benefits, and a combined pre-tax salary of $84,000.
