In Dallas/Fort Worth, our ministries serve vulnerable children, families and seniors with resources and support to protect children, strengthen families, transform generations and serve seniors.
Rishun and her five children have found support and activities at the Buckner Family Hope Center® that have strengthened them as a family. Daryl and Sandra Wright have fostered more than 20 children through Buckner Foster Care and Adoption and enjoy experiencing the different personalities and ages that come through their home. Members at Ventana by Buckner have found ways to inspire happiness in their lives while living independent, active lifestyles.
Buckner provides the training and resources needed to become a family to a child for a season or forever through domestic foster care or 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 Children's Home provides campus foster homes for children. Foster families live in Buckner-owned cottages, providing a consistent home environment for children who are in the state's custody and may have been abused, neglected or abandoned.
We provide single-parent families the opportunity to live in a safe, secure environment while completing their educational or vocational goals and learning the skills they need to be self-sufficient.
