In the Rio Grande Valley, our ministries serve vulnerable children and families with resources and support to protect children, strengthen families and transform generations.
The Varlack family opened their home to children with love, encouragement and faith through Buckner Foster Care and Adoption.Mario, a hardworking single father who lives with his four children in a tiny, broken down trailer with no roof, found support through counseling and classes at the Buckner Family Hope Center®. Anjali and her husband, Adan, qualified for a new home through Buckner Healthy Housing and taking courses at the Family Hope Center - changing the trajectory of their family.
Buckner provides resources and training needed to become a family to a child for a season or forever through domestic foster care or adoption. Children in these programs most often are referred through the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services due to experiencing abuse, neglect or abandonment. Learn how you can change the life of a child through foster care and adoption by calling 855-264-8783.
