Buckner President/CEO Albert Reyes returned late yesterday from visiting with children and families who are served by Buckner who also were affected by Hurricane Harvey. He helped distribute items. He listened to people's stories. He was inspired.
At the end of our first day, a couple of things seem clear to me. Our staff is resilient and committed to this ministry and those they serve. Our children are resilient even among terrible circumstances and an unprecedented storm. Our seniors are pretty incredible and resilient folks too. This is Buckner at our best. We shine hope.
