Buckner Family Hope Center at the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy

Buckner Family Hope Center at the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy Family Hope Centers are child-centered, family-focused places where families go to find hope, support and empowerment in their community. Dr. Robert Cooke “Father” Buckner founded Buckner Orphans Home in 1879 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 parentless 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.

2020 was a year of the unplanned. It was a year that none of our plans mattered anymore because 2020 had a plan of its own, and within that the West Dallas Family Hope Center Team did what was needed to make sure we were keeping our families engaged and encouraged. We offered virtual youth cooking classes, summer camp virtual activities, virtual challenges that promoted positive actions towards others, virtual adult classes and workshops, virtual tutoring, along with many other things. We want to also thank all of the organizations that partnered with us in 2020 and made serving our families a little easier. Take a walk down memory lane with us and know that we are looking forward to seeing how we can bring HOPE and make more memories in 2021.
