When illness and unemployment hit the Shaw’s family, it was their children who suffered the most. Boys Town helped keep their family together.

At Boys Town, we have an unwavering belief in the inherent potential that exists in each child, no matter what their circumstances. We've used our skill and knowledge to develop youth and family services that provide lasting, life-changing results.

We offer services to parents, families, schools and the kids themselves. Our mission is to change the way America cares for children and families.

Every day, through programs nationwide, Boys Town reaches out to help children and families who are most in need. We lift them up, heal their emotional, physical and spiritual wounds and put them on paths to brighter futures. We have an unwavering belief in the positive potential that exists in every child and 90 years of experience, skill and knowledge developing youth and family services that provide lasting, life-changing results.

Every family needs help from time to time. But their needs can be staggering when you consider that nearly two-thirds of America’s youth deal with at least one major childhood trauma such as physical, emotional or sexual abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, separation or divorce, a parent in jail or mental illness. At Boys Town, our mission is to save children and heal families in body, mind and spirit.
