Foster Care and Adoption
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress…” –James 1:27 (NIV)
Motivated by faith. We consider our services to children and families a ministry, deeply rooted in the gospel. Read our full statement of faith.
Dedicated to finding families for children, rather than finding children for families. As we seek to transform the lives of vulnerable children and to build strong families, we always put the child’s needs first and aim to empower them to achieve their goals and flourish in life.
Collaborative. Our team of trained case managers and social workers builds personal relationships and offers emotional support and counseling to every child and family we serve. Whether you are a family seeking to provide foster care or adopt or a mother looking for guidance about your child’s future, we commit to walking alongside you through this journey.
Experienced. Throughout our history, we have placed thousands of children in loving, adoptive homes. Buckner staff is trained to serve children and equip families. Several Buckner employees have fostered or adopted children, so we take our mission professionally and to heart.
Leading Domestic Foster Care and Adoption in Texas and Internationally. Buckner provides services for domestic foster care and adoption in specific cities and counties in Texas. Some of our international locations offer domestic adoption opportunities. This is not considered intercountry adoption, rather Buckner believes it is a better option for children to remain in their birth country, so we are focused on family preservation and family reunification as a priority and in some cases adoption in international countries where we operate.
