Boys Town Helps Foster Parents

Boys Town Helps Foster Parents

This article was posted on wowt.com on December 20, 2016.

Colin and Colby are two former Boys Town residents that perfectly exemplify the life changing quality of Boys Town.

The two children hit a very rough patch in their lives and were in desperate need of help, and foster parents. April and Joey Falk stepped up and became the foster parents of the two boys, but, as first-time parents, the Falks needed help of their own. That is where Boys Town came in, providing everything from training to supplies and even a visiting expert.

"Boys Town's been a huge support for us. I don't know that we would have taken on more than just the one child we started with had it not been for Boys Town" said April.

The help from Boys Town has really been paying off as the Falks, along with Colin and Colby are all adjusting really well to their new family. Joey Falk says it's been an experience like no other.

"It's amazing to see these little kids and see smiles on their faces and know that they are in a safe place growing up," he said. "And they feel safe here and we've seen then grow up right before our eyes which is awesome."
