Buckner Family Pathways programs are designed to help single parents strengthen their families and reduce barriers to self-sufficiency such as lack of education and life skills.

We protect single parents by providing housing, access to child care assistance and a variety of other services. Buckner Family Pathways programs protect families from domestic abuse, financial uncertainty, homelessness and hopelessness.

We equip families with the tools they need to reach their goals and form strong bonds. Among the tools we offer are: parenting skills enhancement, money management training, communication skills and conflict resolution tools, spiritual enrichment, mentorship and accountability.

Families don’t walk alone. Buckner Family Coaches walk alongside them throughout the journey, offering training, skills and encouraging words when needed.

We provide education. With their lives stabilized and a safe place to live, families can focus on improving themselves, seeking to fulfill their goals for higher education and their personal goals.
