In honor of National Child Abuse ​Prevention Month, the Board of Commissioners of Clark County, Nevada, recognized Boys Town Nevada for their tireless efforts in supporting youth and families in Clark County and throughout the state.

Boys Town Nevada along with Olive Crest Nevada, was presented with a proclamation on Tuesday, April 21. Boys Town Nevada Board President, Paul Huygens, was present to accept the award on behalf of the site.

“We are endlessly thankful to be supported by so many amazing community partners that share our belief that all children deserve to live their life in a safe, stable, nurturing environment in communities that foster well-being,” said Howard Olshansky, Boys Town Nevada Executive Director.

Boys Town was honored for their unwavering support of Nevada’s children and families, but more specifically, the Board of Commissioners pointed toward Nevada’s programs and results as stated in the proclamation:

“Whereas, Boys Town Nevada gives families and children a second chance at success with their Integrated Continuum of Care; their research-proven services aid in reuniting kids with their families, finding foster homes for others, or providing a Boys Town family for those with nowhere else to turn; and

Whereas, using their Family-Based Continuum of Care, boys Town Nevada served over 600 families in 2014 and close to 200 families already in 2015; and

Whereas, all children deserve to live their life in a safe, stable, nurturing environment in communities that foster well-being; and

Whereas, the prevention of child abuse and neglect is a public responsibility and effective child abuse prevention strategies succeed through partnerships created among citizens, schools, law enforcement, health systems, faith-based organizations, and community programs.”
