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

Boys Town Family Homes

We provide a family for children ages 10 to 18. Six to eight boys or girls live in each single-family home with a married couple called Family-Teachers®. In these homes, youth learn social and independent-living skills that help them find success in school and in their community.

Community Support Services

Children and parents can tap in to a wide variety of resources to learn how to help themselves through advice from our experts, or receive direct care through specialized services. Most resources focus on prevention rather than intervention.
