DALLAS – Buckner Foundation completed the second phase of fundraising in January for the $2 million capital campaign project to expand the Buckner Family Pathways program and campus.
Annette C. Simmons, a Dallas philanthropist, provided the lead gift for both phases of the project.
In April 2012, the first phase of the expansion project was completed and the new campus was named after Simmons. The campus currently has eight duplexes which house 16 mothers and their children. The expansion will include the construction of new duplexes on the existing campus, and the majority will be built with three-bedroom apartments. The three-bedroom apartments are needed to accommodate large sibling groups.
“We are thrilled to announce the completion of the second phase of our project,” said David Slover, president of Buckner Foundation and vice president of Buckner International. “The strength of this program lies in its design to impact two generations by helping transform the life of the parent while redirecting the children away from a path of poverty and dependency. God continues to bless this ministry in amazing ways so Buckner can continue it’s work of keeping families together.”
