Maria lives in a low-income area of Dallas and has trouble speaking English so she can't find a steady job. Lara is a single mother who fled an abusive relationship and desperately wants a college degree so she can provide a better life for her sons. Jack has been shuffled through multiple foster homes in his young life and is available for adoption, desperately seeking the stability of a loving, Christian home.
We offer a wide variety of services to children, families and single parents in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with the goal of building the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in life and fulfill their God-given potential.
When you volunteer with Buckner in Dallas, you will meet people like Maria, Lara and Jack. You will minister to them and pray with them. Their stories will leave an eternal impact on your soul. The Buckner ministry is unlike any other.
In Dallas/Fort Worth, we provide:
Foster care and adoption
Buckner provides the training and resources needed to become a family to a child for a season through foster care or a forever family through domestic or intercountry adoption. Children in these programs are most often referred through the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services due to experiencing abuse, neglect or abandonment. We also respond to mothers experiencing an unplanned pregnancy with counseling and support.
Buckner Foster Care and Adoption has offices in Dallas and Fort Worth, serving children and families in the DFW metroplex. For more information about how you can change the life of a child, contact our Dallas office at 855-264-8783 or our Fort Worth office at 817-693-8370.
