Family of Boys Town Youth Leads Employee to Boys Town

Stephanie Pitt, Boys Town Washington DC In-Home Family Services (IHFS) Consultant, has always loved working with youth. Little did she know that mentoring a young girl in her neighborhood would eventually lead her to Boys Town.

Last year, Stephanie was mentoring a young girl when she first heard about Boys Town Washington DC. The girl had a younger brother in the Family Home Program, and after attending her brother’s graduation, the girl told Stephanie that Boys Town would be the perfect fit for her.

“The girl I was mentoring told me that I should look into Boys Town and that all of the people that worked there really cared about the youth,” said Stephanie. “She told me about how she saw so many positive changes in her brother because of Boys Town and that it would be a great fit for me.”

Hearing the youth and her brother talk so highly of Boys Town, Stephanie began researching and looking for job openings. When the IHFS Consultant position opened up, she immediately applied. Stephanie began working for Boys Town in November 2014, and really enjoys the environment and her position.

“I am really impressed by the people and the organization,” said Stephanie. “The experience has been awesome. I have learned so much and love the team.”

“Stephanie has been a great asset to the IHFS program here in DC,” said Harold Morgan, IHFS Supervisor, Boys Town Washington DC. “She builds great rapports with families, always has a smile on her face and has adopted the Boys Town Model ® as her own.”

Stephanie is currently working with nine families, primarily those with elementary school-aged children. She looks forward to continuing to help more children and families with Boys Town.
