A Lubbock program for women, especially single mothers, received a significant gift on Thursday.
The J.T. and Margaret Talkington Foundation established a $500,000 endowment for My Father's House, a ministry of Buckner Children and Family Services.
The endowment will provide scholarship assistance and support to the single parent families served by My Father's House.
The program offers a variety of services that help women become and remain self-sufficient.
