Buckner Dallas Fort Worth

Buckner Dallas Fort Worth's mission is to follow the example of Jesus by serving vulnerable children and families. Dr. Robert Cooke “Father” Buckner founded Buckner Orphans Home in 1879 in Dallas after seeing the needs of hurting and orphaned children in post-Civil War Texas.

In the first years, Buckner Orphans Home was filled with children left parentless due to disease and hardship. It was Father Buckner’s deep compassion for the hopeless and helpless that served as the driving force behind his ministry. He constantly looked for innovative ways to deliver social ministries, including those to elders, combining his theological beliefs with a progressive social conscience.

Today is #FosterYouthAgingOutAwarenessDay, a day dedicated to bring awareness to the more than 20,000 youth who age out of foster care each year. When kids age out of care they are left to navigate from adolescence to young adulthood on their own. For many former foster youth, this means vulnerability to human trafficking, abuse and homelessness. Learn more at https://hubs.la/H0M_ZJd0.

While 26% of foster care placements end in an adoption, the goal of foster care is to reunify the child with their birth family. Foster families are needed to care for children while their birth families work to create a safer and healthier environment for their children.

General information

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 833-724-2777 for more information about how you can change the life of a child. Campus homes at Buckner Children's Home: Buckner Children's Home provides campus foster homes for children. Foster families live in Buckner-owned cottages, providing a consistent home environment for children who are in the state's custody and may have been abused, neglected or abandoned. 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. Want to know more? Call 214-328-3141 for more information. NextStep: NextStep is a supervised independent living program for young women transitioning out of foster care or who have been referred by other partner organizations. Participants receive the support they need to meet their educational, career and independent living goals through training, coaching and opportunities for spiritual development.
