​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Jacob's Story

​A Journey From Bullying Victim to Confident Leader

Depressed, sad and lonely, Jacob handed his mother a letter in 8th grade telling her that ​he wanted to kill himself. After several years of sending her son to counselors and psychiatrists, Jacob’s mother found hope for Jacob at​ Boys Town. Almost immediately there was a no​ticeable change in his demeanor. He was engaged and confident for the first time in ​​​years.
