Our mission is to change the way America cares for children and families, a mission we know is possible because our employees believe in providing the best care to the children, families and patients we serve.
We are a national organization that reaches communities across the country. That means we offer opportunities for our employees to live in a variety of locales while working with those in greatest need of compassionate, effective assistance. Your contributions as a Boys Town employee will help us continue our mission into our second century of service and beyond.
Programs to Help Children
Family Home Program
We provide a family for children ages 10 to 18. Six to eight boys or girls live in each single-family home with a married couple called Family-Teachers®.
Residential Treatment Center
Children ages 5 to 18 who have severe behavioral and mental health problems receive care at this state-of-the-art center.
Intervention and Assessment Services
We provide care for abused, neglected, runaway and delinquent youth of all ages by removing them from dangerous situations, assessing their needs, and beginning to work toward family reunification or other permanent care.
Boys Town Schools
Students who are being served by our programs or have struggled in mainstream school programs attend schools operated by Boys Town. Specially trained Boys Town teachers and administrators provide instruction to help meet children's unique learning needs.
Programs for Families
In-Home Family Services
We help teach families not only how to handle issues after they arise but also how to prevent them from becoming more disruptive, while they remain in their home.
Foster Family Services
Foster parents, trained and supported by Boys Town, open their homes to children who need a safe place to live.
Common Sense Parenting®
The proactive skills and techniques taught in this program help parents create healthy family relationships that foster safety and well-being at home, in school and in the community.
Boys Town National Hotline
Available 24/7, 365 days a year, the Boys Town National Hotline is staffed by trained counselors who can give advice and find help for a wide range of issues, from addiction and suicidal thoughts to adolescent defiance and other issues.
Boys Town Training for Educators
Backed by a century of experience in youth education, Boys Town has developed a series of evidence-based training programs for educators, administrators and school staff. These programs are designed to improve student learning and test scores while reducing classroom disruptions and office referrals.
This program provides a lifeline to children, parents and families suffering from mental health issues by connecting them with programs or resources that can provide the best care.
