Description of Ministry
Buckner Family Hope Centers are child-centered, family-focused places where families go to find hope, support and empowerment in their community to reach their fullest God-given potential. The key to the Family Hope Center’s success is found in combining effective programs and passionate people to help families that are experiencing poverty, family issues and lack of services.
The Family Hope Center programs seek to engage through family assistance and community events; equip; families through education, financial empowerment, child and youth development and spiritual development; elevate; families through family coaching, counseling and spiritual enrichment.
Description of UBC Involvement

CCISD Spring Break each year. Usually mid-March. Travel to the site from UBC on first Sunday of Spring Break and return the following Thursday morning.
