To improve and enrich the quality of life in the 26-county Texas Panhandle through our ability to provide short-term rehabilitation, long-term services and support for the elderly and their families, to educate ministers to preach the Christian religion and to share resources with partners addressing critical community needs.
In every endeavor, the Bivins Foundation will strive to help each person achieve and maintain the highest standards possible in Dignity, Independence, Self-Worth and Good Health.
