Programs

​​Boys Town has been dedicated to saving children and healing families for 100 years. Boys Town South Florida offers a variety of services based on the research-proven Boys Town Model®:

In-Home Family Services

We help teach families not only how to handle issues after they arise but also how to prevent them from becoming more disruptive, while they remain in their home.

Located in one of the largest school districts in the nation, Boys Town South Florida screens more than 11,000 kindergarten and first-grade students in 60 schools each year. The screenings determine the need for early intervention and in-home and in-school support. On average, 22 percent of children screened are deemed eligible for Boys Town services.
