Boys Town History

​A revolution in youth care was launched in 1975 when this former dormitory was converted into the first Boys Town Family Home. This new model of care, where a group of boys or girls live and learn under the care and tutelage of a married couple known as Family-Teachers, would eventually spread beyond Boys Town to residential youth care programs across the country. Watch the video to learn how it all began.
