Mission Statement

Buckner International is a global Christian ministry that seeks justice for 'the least of these' by providing care and resources for orphans and at-risk children in the United States and more than 50 countries around the world. Through international orphanage support, humanitarian aid, short-term missions, foster care and adoption, Buckner has made a lasting impact in some of the world's most poverty-stricken and socially desperate countries.

For 130 years, Buckner has been a progressive leader in the movement towards justice for orphans and widows. Today, Buckner works in an advisory role with many international governments to educate leaders on children's issues and create new legislature ensuring lasting changes for at-risk children.

Simply put, we seek to make life better for orphans, at-risk children and families.


For 130 years, Buckner International has sought to minister to the needs of those Jesus called "the least of these." Or as James wrote in his epistle, "true and undefiled religion is this; to minister to widows and orphans in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world." (James 1:27) This is who we are, and we want you to be a part of what we do.

Join us in our quest to improve the lives of at-risk children and their families as we seek to change lives in the name of Jesus Christ.
