Buckner has been dedicated to providing services that help strengthen at-risk children and families in Lubbock since 1958. A wide variety of services are offered to children, families and single mothers with a goal of building the necessary skills and knowledge they need to succeed in life.

Programs Overview

lubbock-foster2Buckner provides Lubbock and surrounding areas with training and resources needed to become a family to a child living in the state’s custody or to a child available for adoption in the United States or internationally. Learn more at www.beafamily.org. (Funded in part by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services)

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.

lubbock-mfhlMy Father’s House is an ecumenical ministry that helps women obtain an education and become self-sufficient in a Christian environment. Many of these women have experienced poverty, homelessness or abuse. They set goals for themselves to measure their progress in spiritual, educational and personal areas.

lubbock-transitionprogsOur transition programs are provided for current and former youth in state care, ages 16 through 21. The program targets seniors in high school and youth leaving foster care. The goal of the program is to provide training, support and guidance to youth graduating from foster care that will enhance their ability to successfully transition into independent living. This program is a partnership with Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
