For more than a decade, Geoff has worked closely with Buckner International to tell its story.
Buckner International is a ministry dedicated to the transformation and restoration of the lives they serve. They are a Christ-centered organization that delivers redemptive ministry to the most vulnerable from the beginning to the ending of life. Buckner’s mission is to:
Children need safety and encouragement to thrive. Often, children are the most underserved and unheard population. They can be subject to abuse, neglect or even being orphaned. That’s why we are called to protect children and provide loving families for a moment or a lifetime.
The number one reason children are exposed to harm or fail to thrive? Families that can’t support them. The results are poverty, lack of education, poor parenting skills and poor decisions. When we strengthen families, we support parents in developing skills to successfully nurture their children.
We break negative cycles of family issues through ministries that solve problems at the root cause, so families are empowered to be strong, successful and sustainable. Families are transformed when they dive into learning together, breaking habits and creating success from generation to generation.
Senior adulthood should be the culmination of a life well-lived and a time of happiness. That’s why we’re Inspiring happiness® for senior adults by serving their needs in Buckner senior living communities, enriching their lives with the dignity, energy and attention they deserve.
