YOU can help protect children and strengthen families right here in North Texas on North Texas Giving Day on Sept. 14, 2017 (Scheduled Giving Sept. 7 – 13)!
40% of Dallas’ children live below the poverty line.
Buckner is responding to this need through the new development of the Buckner Family Hope Center at Bachman Lake in Dallas.
After taking a Jobs for Life class through the Buckner Family Hope Center at Bachman Lake in Dallas, Tilia Sanchez, found the courage to start a business with her husband. Her family has gone from stretching $100 through a week to owning a successful construction business in North Texas.
“Buckner was not only a financial blessing to us, it didn’t only help us to start our own business, it helped me personally, spiritually and psychologically,” Tilia said.
The Buckner Family Hope Center at Bachman Lake is equipping families with the educational and financial resources they need to succeed. Together, we can shine hope into the lives of Dallas families like Tilia’s who are facing overwhelming odds.
Your gift to Buckner on North Texas Giving Day supports our North Texas ministries and those we serve in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
