Living out the James 1:27 call

Here at Buckner, our clients have a name and they have a face. By partnering with Buckner, you'll be able to hear their stories and minister to them first-hand. You will pray with them and for them as you serve alongside them. It's living out the James 1:27 call to serve widows and orphans in their distress, and it's a ministry unlike any other.

Your church can get involved with Buckner ministries in many different ways in the United States and around the world. Here's a quick snapshot of options. Contact us for a tailormade experience!
  • Volunteer or go on a mission trip. Your church can change lives for Christ in the United States or internationally. Engage in redemptive ministry by distributing humanitarian aid; sharing Christ to those in need; “adopting” a family served by one of our transitional ministries; or engaging with families through our Family Hope Centers.
  • Support foster care and adoption. Buckner provides foster homes for children at risk of abuse or neglect, and we help children find “forever families” through adoption. You and your church can help these children by supporting foster and adoptive families – or identifying families in your church called to foster or adopt.
  • Collect aid for children in need. You can join us to collect humanitarian aid for children who desperately need help. Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls® provides new shoes and socks to orphans and vulnerable children in the U.S. and around the world.
To start engaging your church in ministry “to the least of these” today, contact church engagement officer Gilbert Montez at 214-758-8106, 800-442-4800 ext. 808106 or at
