Buckner campus homes across Texas have been approved to be used by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services as safe homes for foster children and DFPS staff during transitions when there are not enough foster care placements available.
Buckner campus homes in Dallas, Beaumont, Lubbock, Midland and Mission in the Rio Grande Valley will help provide consistent, safe environments for these children.
You can help foster children feel loved while they are in care
In addition to needing a safe place to sleep, they will need food, clothing, sheets, towels and other basic necessities. You can partner with us to meet those needs.
We want each child to receive a welcome kit containing items such as:
- self-care items
- devotional books
- and more.
A majority of incoming children will be ages 13 to 17 years old.
Care packages for care providers are also needed
We also want to provide support for the CPS staff staying in the homes through care packages. The staff will receive care packages that include fun office supplies, self-care items and encouraging notes.
A total of 32 kids will be able to stay in Buckner homes at any given time. You can help make their stay even more welcoming.
