The Buckner Foster Care program provides the unique opportunity for a family to share their home with a child in need of a temporary home. Currently, there are approximately 500,000 children living in foster homes in the United States with close to 30,000 in Texas. Many of these children have been removed from their homes for abuse or neglect.
When you become a Buckner foster parent, you make an investment in the life of a child. These are children who belong in families – children who need families to love and care for them. As a Buckner foster parent, you are part of a family that has been caring for children and families since 1879. With ministries throughout Texas and around the world, Buckner is a strong, stable support system for you and your foster child.
Many of our foster families also desire to grow their family through adoption. As a Buckner foster parent, you may want to discover the joy of permanently adding a child to your family. Our foster-to-adopt services offer you the possibility to adopt foster children who reside in your home. Because Buckner is both a licensed foster care provider and a licensed adoption agency, we are uniquely suited to help you adopt your foster child if adoption becomes part of the child's plan.
