lubbock-childrenshomeBuckner Children’s Home provides group foster care to children ages birth to 17 in six foster homes on campus.

Foster families live in Buckner-owned cottages and provide children with the structured home environment they need to heal and recover from family crisis or neglect.

Because our campus is a foster group home setting, we provide care for a diverse set of children with a variety of needs, including large sibling groups.


Many single parents find themselves in a cycle that leads to hopelessness and long-term dependence on public assistance. My Father’s House Lubbock seeks to end this cycle by facilitating education, providing housing and by sharing the peace and stability that comes from faith in Christ. Single parents in the program work with a case manager to set goals for themselves to measure their progress in spiritual, educational and personal areas.

We help single parents to:

• Receive a certification, diploma or degree through the college or vocational training of her choice
• Move from dependency to self-sufficiency as the financial providers for their families.
• Become effective and loving parents.
• Equip themselves with skills to manage key relationships and responsibilities.
• Demonstrate responsible personal choices and decisions that reflect a Christian lifestyle.

This program is a partnership with Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
