Parenting a child with special needs requires courage, confidence, and resilience. We believe the Lord equips parents of children with special needs. In fact, working parents of children with special needs perform optimally in the workplace due to the personal challenges they have learned to overcome and advocacy they have demonstrated to meet their child’s needs. If you are the parent of a child with special needs or are considering becoming one, meet us up high with double palms! You are awesome.

Buckner International

Buckner International is a global ministry dedicated to the transformation and restoration of the lives we serve. We are a Christ-centered organization that delivers redemptive ministry to the most vulnerable from the beginning to the ending of life.

Our legacy
Dr. Robert Cooke “Father” Buckner founded Buckner Orphans Home 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 parent-less 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.
