Boys Town Intervention and Assessment Services ® Page Image Page ContentThese services provide care for youth who are in trouble with the law, have been removed from their homes and families, and are awaiting adjudication. Many of these youth have been abandoned, abused, or neglected, and suffer from a number of emotional and behavioral problems. We provide them with a safe environment, where we assess their needs and begin to work toward family reunification or other permanent care. Hundreds of youngsters, ages 10 to 18, from all five boroughs of New York City, find help each year through these services at our three Intervention and Assessment Homes – two in Brooklyn and one in Queens. The average length of stay for a child is 30 days.
