New Employees Allow Boys Town Central Nebraska to Expand Services

Boys Town Central Nebraska In-Home Family Services (IHFS) is excited for their expansion of services and employees.  The North Platte office opened in July 2014 with one IHFS Supervisor and one Family Consultant and added an additional Family Consultant in November. The Columbus office has doubled in size with two new Family Consultants since opening in December of 2013.

New services will aid in serving more children in their homes and communities before problems become so severe that they need to be placed out of their home. “Providing this early intervention is empowering because families will be able to have the tools they need to learn new skills, solve problems, and access local resources to meet their needs,” said Dave Reed, Director, Boys Town Central Nebraska Operations.

“The youth are able to remain in their own home and school while the family is able to stay together and work on needed changes,” added Reed “This is important to Boys Town because we are able to grow the community-based end of our continuum of care. Doing this is far more efficient financially while also being better for families and this translates into more resources available to serve more children and families.”
