MIDLAND, Texas – Friends, supporters and residents of Buckner Family Place gathered at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1 for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of six new apartments, located at 425 West Pecan.
The new apartment buildings will bring the total number of units to 16, meaning more lives will be transformed in Midland, said program director Anna Rodriquez.
“We can now open our doors to help more single mothers,” she said. “We are helping women break the cycle of abuse, homelessness and poverty to achieve their goals. This is our calling; it’s our passion.”
Buckner Family Place provides single mothers with the opportunity to live in a safe, secure environment while completing their educational goals and learning the necessary skills to become self-sufficient. Since 2003, Buckner has served 53 displaced single mothers and 96 children through the program.
Mothers who have graduated from Buckner Family Place program are now Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, dental hygienists, respiratory therapists, child care workers, teachers, social workers, and business professionals giving back to the Permian Basin.
