The children, families and seniors we serve in Houston have a face, and they have a name. They have a story. Marissa is a single mom of four girls who grew up surrounded by drugs and alcohol, eventually falling into the same patterns of her family. She fled her home to Houston, living in a homeless shelter while she tried to get her life together. She knew she wanted to get an education but didn't have the means or support to do it. Until she found Buckner.
When you volunteer with Buckner, you will meet families like Marissa's. You will be able to pray with them and for them, long after you've left. They will leave an indelible mark on your soul. Buckner ministry is hands-on, and it's unlike any other.
In Houston, we provide:
Buckner Family Hope Center at Aldine
Buckner Family Hope Centers are child-centered, family-focused places where families go to find hope, support and empowerment in their community to reach their fullest God-given potential. The key to the Family Hope Center’s success is found in combining effective programs and passionate people to help families that are experiencing poverty, family issues and lack of services.
Our programs seek to engage through family assistance and community events; equip families through education, financial empowerment, child and youth development and spiritual development; and elevate families through family coaching, counseling and spiritual enrichment.
Call 281-449-4828 for more information about the variety of services offered through this Hope Center.
