In Lufkin, our ministries serve vulnerable children and families with resources and support to protect children, strengthen families and transform generations.
Tiffany, an orphan at 17 years old, had to face adult challenges early on. And after her daughter Kalista was born, she knew she wanted a strong foundation to set an example for her. They both found security and encouragement through Buckner Family Pathways®. For the Hudspeth family, they pursued their dream of having a big family through opening their hearts and their home to children in Buckner Foster Care and Adoption.
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. Learn more here. For more information, call 855.264.8783. Visit our office.
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. Families are provided support through access to affordable housing, financial assistance, counseling, spiritual growth and case management services. For more information, call 936.637.3300 or fill out the inquiry form.
Our support programs are provided for current and former youth in state foster care. The goal of the program is to provide training, support and guidance to youth graduating from foster care that will enhance their ability to transition into independent living. Call 936.637.3300 for more information.
