The children and families we serve in Midland have a face, and they have a name. That's what makes Buckner unique - you will learn their names and their stories. You'll be able to pray for them and walk alongside them as they find God's calling for their lives.
You will meet people like Monica, a single mother of three who has suffered unthinkable abuse and was homeless for six months. She is now in school to earn a degree and make a better life for her children. Or you'll meet children like Max and Emma, siblings who have been in foster care for six years and are desperately praying for a forever family to love them.
When you volunteer with Buckner in Midland, people like Monica, Max and Emma will leave an indelible mark on your soul.
In Midland, we offer:
Foster care and adoption
Buckner provides the training and resources needed to become a family to a child for a season through foster care or a forever family through domestic or intercountry 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. Call 855-264-8783 for more information.
Buckner Family Pathways
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. Contact us at 432-520-5588 to find out more.
