Longview, TX — Buckner Children and Family Services officials on Thursday announced plans to open a new Longview facility to help area families make major transitions in their lives.

The new Community Transformation Center will improve the lives of individuals and families experiencing the crisis of poverty by providing a holistic approach to ministry, said Michelle Heflin, director of the center.

“Families will work with an assigned case manager to identify their needs and develop a family-centered transformation plan, which may include support and referrals to secure financial, emotional, mental, spiritual or physical resources,” she said.

Buckner officials plan to celebrate the opening with an open house from 1 to 3 p.m., May 31 at 110 E. Cotton St.

“The official opening of the CTC is a natural progression of our vision for the community as a whole,” Heflin said. “There are many great agencies in Longview and surrounding counties that are prepared to address the life challenges that families are experiencing.”
