Boys Town Family Home Program

Children of all ages receive care from married couples called Family-Teachers ® in three homes for boys and two homes for girls on our 22-acre Las Vegas campus. Many of these children have suffered the trauma of abuse, neglect or abandonment, and have been removed from their homes. Often, they have serious emotional and behavioral problems. Family-Teachers and Assistant Family-Teachers (who help care for youth in Family Homes) provide compassionate, effective care while meeting the daily needs of each child. In these single-family homes, youth form a family and learn social and independent-living skills that help them find success in school and in their community.

The ultimate goal is to reunify children with their families, whenever possible. Children are referred to Family Homes through contracts with state and other agencies.

When youth leave our Family Homes, Aftercare Services help them maintain and continue the progress they’ve made. Trained staff members help children make smooth transitions back to their families or other placements so they can experience success at home, in school and in their community. The program also helps prepare youth for life after Boys Town and provides ongoing support for high school graduates as they continue their education or enter the work force or military.
