Lift with Boys Town
A community-based, multi-tiered, multi-component, prevention intervention system. Our goal is to intervene before problems reach a level where children are unsafe, not at school, and the school community is not thriving. The program’s family- and school-based programs combine for a multi-component approach that uses a common language and a common set of expectations among teachers, parents, and children.
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.
Behavioral Health Clinic
The clinic offers a wide range of outpatient services for children of all ages. Individual therapy, family therapy and psychological evaluations are available for children and young adults (up to age 22) who are experiencing any of a wide variety of problems, including ADHD, school difficulties, emotional issues, noncompliance and relationship concerns.
Care Coordination Services
Care Coordination Services is an intensive, family-centered case management program designed to help families navigate through complex systems such as the mental health care system, school systems and available community programs. Through visits and meetings, trained Care Coordinators work with families and other involved parties (school personnel, therapists, coaches, attorneys, and others) to identify strengths and needs, develop service plans based on family choices, link families to services and programs that monitor their progress on an ongoing basis and advocate for the needs of children and families.
