​​​What Is Boys Town Foster Family Services®?

Often, foster children have been abused or neglected, ​​​and they can no longer live safely at home—at least for a while, and sometimes permanently. Foster children may be newborns, toddlers, grade-schoolers, middle-schoolers, and teenagers. They often have brothers and sisters who are in the same situation. Some might have medical problems and disabilities; others may have special care needs. Most have hidden wounds.

Boys Town Foster Family Services is a community-based program where professionally trained foster parents provide care and support to children of all ages, from infants to adolescents. Foster parents help the children in their care meet behavioral, emotional, and educational milestones. Service intensity ranges from highly intensive to less intensive, based on the child's needs.

With a focus on reunification, Foster Family Services also​ use a strengths-based, team approach to work with families and help them achieve safety, permanency, and well-being.

Foster parents receive 24/7 support from Boys Town professionals. Like all other services and programs in Boys Town's Integrated Continuum of Care®, the care provided in Foster Family Services is based on the research-proven Boys Town Model®.​
