MISSION STATEMENT

Changing the way America cares for children, families and communities by providing and promoting an Integrated Continuum of Care® that instills Boys Town values to strengthen body, mind and spirit.

BACKGROUND

Since 1917, Boys Town has given thousands of at-risk girls and boys the love, support and education they need to succeed. Every day, abused and neglected children and broken and struggling families find help at Boys Town. The care Boys Town provides is uniquely effective because it is driven by our unwavering belief that every child and every family has the potential to succeed, regardless of their circumstances. When Boys Town saves a child, the positive effects ripple through the community, contributing to greater progress for society as a whole.

BRAG LINES

  •  In 2016, Boys Town served 508,817 children across the country.
  •  Crisis Counselors at the Boys Town National Hotline® prevented more than 450 suicide attempts last year.
  •  Boys Town programs and services touch the lives of more than 2 million people nationwide every year.
  •  Boys Town conducts applied research that focuses on understanding the problems children and families face in today’s world and identifying the most effective ways to help them.

PAY IT FORWARD

You can help a child break free from the cycle of abuse and neglect and enter adulthood prepared to succeed. Get involved and help spread the word—Boys Town kids are everywhere.
