The mission statement
of Buckner International defines us as “a multi-service agency dedicated to the restoration and healing of individuals and the family. In carrying out these services, Buckner adheres to Christian principles, which are ministered with professional competence. In all its operations and services, Buckner holds to the policies, principles and doctrines of the Baptist faith.”
Fulfilling that mission in the 21st century means Buckner as an organization must be willing to change and adapt to the changing needs of those we’re called to serve. And while that change is often thought of as changing our ministries and programs, Buckner is constantly being asked to change our geography, too. For more than 100 years, Buckner was primarily confined to ministry within the state boundaries of Texas. But continual pleas from across the United States and around the world for the expertise Buckner offers led us to expand our work. Today, Buckner works both as a consultant and practitioner to improve the lives of orphans, at-risk children, families and senior adults around the globe. Our years of experience position Buckner as a global leader in issues related to orphans and at-risk children.
With more than 1,000 employees around the world and a wide array of ministry programs, Buckner is a world leader in humanitarian services.
