Boys Town Intervention and Assessment Service℠ Page Image Page ContentThis service level provides 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. Nearly 300 girls and boys, ages 10 to 18, find help each year through these services at our Intervention and Assessment center in Oviedo. These children may be referred by juvenile justice representatives or by child welfare agencies that have removed the children from their homes or have taken responsibility for their well-being. The average length of stay for children is 30 days. When children leave, they may move to another program in the Boys Town Integrated Continuum of Care SM or other outside programs, or return home to their families.
