About Boys Town Nebraska

​​The Village of Boys Town, Nebraska

The Village of Boys Town, incorporated as a Nebraska municipality in 1936, has its own police and fire departments, schools, churches, post office and ball fields — along with numerous historic venues. A National Historic Landmark since 1985, the Village of Boys Town is now the only National Historic Landmark District in Nebraska.

At any given time, about 400 boys and girls live in the Village, receiving care and guidance for a wide range of behavioral, emotional and academic issues. The youth live in a regular, single-family home — typically eight kids to a residence — with a married Family-Teaching couple who cares for and nurtures them in the Boys Town Family Home Program SM. In this community of hope, boys and girls change their lives and prepare to go out into the world as confident people of good character.

Several times, Boys Town has been named one of the "100 Best Communities for Young People" by the America's Promise Alliance.

The Village also serves as Boys Town's national headquarters, as well as the headquarters for Boys Town Nebraska/Iowa — the organization’s flagship region. It is the center of research and program development and the organization’s administrative and financial activities. The Boys Town National Research Hospital's ® West Omaha facility, with clinics that provide a variety of medical and child treatment services, is also located at the Village.

In addition to our campus, Boys Town is expanding its programs and services to the community with neighborhood offices. Check out what's happening in South Omaha.
