Boys Town Admissions: Finding the Kids Who Need Our Help

Boys Town is a place where kids get second chances and learn how to make good choices. At Boys Town Admissions, we work every day to find boys and girls who are ready to turn their lives around and experience success in school, at home and in their community.

Our residential program at Boys Town is made up a diverse population of youngsters who come here from all over the country. Some have gotten into trouble with the law and have been referred by the courts or other agencies; others have been sent by their parents before their behaviors get them into trouble. We also have kids who come to Boys Town because they have nowhere else to go.

How do we find the kids who can benefit most from living and learning at Boys Town?

We have a dedicated team of professionals who work with parents, state agencies and county juvenile justice systems across the country to identify boys and girls who need high-quality residential care so they can make positive, lasting changes. Our goal is to always to put the needs of youth and their families first, and to give kids their best opportunities to succeed.

If you think your child or a child you know may benefit from Boys Town’s life-changing care, please call us at 1-800-989-0000 or visit
