Connecting you with impact around the world
What if you fully used your gifts and talents to make a difference in the lives of children and families?
As individuals and families become equipped to navigate the varying circumstances of today, Buckner Missions invites you to participate in supporting the people we serve through our holistic programs.
In many cases, it can take 15 or more years for families living in the Texas Colonias to build a home on their own. With the help of the Buckner Family Hope Center® locations and the Healthy Housing program, this process can be expedited to just a few months.
Healthy Housing, including home builds, healthy homes, bathroom builds and home repair workshops, seeks to provide physical support to families as a supplement to the work done with family coaches through the Family Hope Center programs. Healthy Housing helps families move to a healthier lifestyle together but also reinforces self-esteem and improves health and hygiene basics.
While enrolled at the Family Hope Center, families take classes like financial empowerment, ESL, child and youth development and spiritual development. Family coaching and counseling services also help elevate families toward self-sufficiency.
When a family is ready, they can apply for this housing program where we connect churches and groups to come alongside families as they construct their homes. Through the Healthy Housing program, families have access to a safe and healthy home, leading to lasting change in the family’s social and emotional well-being.
Ask us about getting your church or group involved in building a home with a family in the Texas Rio Grande Valley. We can work with groups of all skill levels and have other church partners who can assist in sharing their expertise and knowledge as well.
