Boys Town California Opens New Family Homes

The new Family Homes will allow siblings to remain together.

Boys Town California opened two ​new Family Homes located in Tustin, California on July 1, 2015.

One home will serve children ages 0-5, and the other will care for children 6-18. Each home will house six children. For the first time, the Family Homes will be mixed gender; this will allow siblings to remain together in the same home.

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to serve more children by opening additional Family Homes,” said Lawren Ramos, Executive Director of Boys Town California. “We are excited to see the opportunities these homes will provide for the children in our care.”

Thanks to volunteers from United Parcel Service’s (UPS) Emerging Leaders, the homes are looking better than ever. The volunteers spent four hours on Saturday, July 11, setting-up cribs, cleaning and organizing.

The new homes will provide a safe haven for twelve more children in need. With the addition of the new homes, Boys Town California now has seven homes in Trabuco Canyon and Tustin.
