Our Wish for 2021

Our Wish for 2021

​​​​​​​Dear Boys Town Central Florida Friends and Supporters,

This past year has been a challenge of historic proportions. While battling the pandemic and the many restrictions and barriers placed on our children and staff on campus, we have been successful in keeping our children safe and maintaining momentum towards their goals. Your contributions enabled us to fund additional positions and technology to support academic learning in each of our Family Homes which was a vital and an enormously successful endeavor. Our kids have excelled under this plan. Thank you!

During this time, we also quickly adapted and developed new, innovative ways to provide our services to meet the needs of families in our community. Our In-Home Family Services, Behavioral Health Clinic and parent training services have each continued to meet with families through video and telehealth platforms. These services have been essential during this difficult, stress-filled time in our families’ lives. We could not have achieved this so quickly and effectively without your help!

As we look ahead to 2021, there is hope. With that hope, there is much more work to be done as we gradually transition with our community back to normalcy. The effects of the pandemic, especially on our economy, will continue to create despair and setbacks for many. We must be ready to meet those needs.

In 2021, we will look to expand our outreach to children and families in need through parent training, In-Home Family Services, emergency shelter and our Behavioral Health Clinic. We foresee that times will likely become tougher before they improve, and it’s our mission and job to be there to assist. We hope we can depend on you to partner with us to make that happen!

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Be safe.
