Buckner Family Pathways is a family preservation program designed to help single parents strengthen their families and reduce barriers to self-sufficiency, lack of education and independent life skills. These programs offer single parents enrollment in an academic, vocational or rehabilitation program and assistance with child care is also provided for their children. In addition, residents are offered financial assistance, vocational training, parent education, budget training, life skills and individual and group counseling.
This year, Buckner Family Pathways is celebrating 20 years of strengthening single parent families by giving parents the tools to accomplish their education and vocation needs, catapulting families toward self-sufficiency.
Here's a look at the impact the program has had on vulnerable families during that time.
