Program Description:

Buckner Family Place is a residential student parent support model developed through a partnership of Angelina College, a non-profit agency called Buckner Children and Family Services, and the Women’s Shelter of East Texas. Private funds helped build 40 apartments in a complex on college land with an on-site child development center and multiple support services available, including counseling, case management, and parent education and supports. There are seven different locations throughout Texas. The protected environment is helpful for the majority of mothers who have experienced domestic violence. Follow up data show that 60 percent of participants leave with a certificate or Associate’s degree.
