Buckner's board or trustees approved an updated mission statement for our organization earlier this year. It's short. It's simple. And gets straight to the heart of what we're here to accomplish for the kingdom:
To follow the example of Jesus by serving vulnerable children, families and seniors.
Never in the history of our generation has serving others been more urgent. The vulnerable children, families and seniors we’re called to serve need us now, more than ever. The individuals that were already vulnerable because of abuse, neglect, poverty, loneliness and age can see these vulnerabilities amplified during the 2020 pandemic.
I am humbled to serve alongside our staff who take our mission to heart each and everyday, and I hope our clients see that hope shine through in the service they receive.
