Buckner Foster Care and Adoption provides safe and loving homes for vulnerable children who need them — for a season or forever. Foster care and adoption are profound ways to change a child’s life forever, and our commitment to family means we provide comprehensive services for you and the children we serve across Texas. Our goal and ministry is to help every child find hope and healing through family foster care or permanency through reunification with kin or through the blessing of adoption.

We, at Buckner Foster Care and Adoption, are:

Motivated by our faith. We consider our services to children and families a ministry, deeply rooted in the gospel. Read our full statement of faith here.

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.

Your partner. 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 seeking guidance about your child’s future, we commit to walking alongside you at every step.
