An Egg-cellent Easter Event Brings Together Youth, Families and Staff at Boys Town California

On March 20, Family-Teaching Couple ​Matt and Megan Milner welcomed 25 guests into their Family Home on the Boys Town California Tustin Campus to celebrate the Easter season. Youth, their families, Boys Town staff, and volunteers were invited to participate in activities, including crafts, an Easter egg hunt, and lunch.

The event provided an opportunity to showcase the Family Homes on the Tustin Campus, which opened eight months ago, to staff from the Trabuco Canyon campus. The patio, grassy area, and large double doors made the home a perfect location to entertain guests and enjoy the weather.

Hosting events such as the Easter event or last year’s Fourth of July event help the parents of youth better understand the services Boys Town provides and the care their children are receiving on a daily basis.

“We believe these events are important especially for our home, because since opening in July, we have youth whose families are very involved in their lives and are working towards reunification,” said Megan Milner. “It also allows our kids to use more skills related to hosting guests, participating and leading group activities, and showing their families their new skills.”

The Milner’s hope the Easter event becomes an annual tradition. Although the children in each Family Home may change, the memories created through holidays, celebrations, and events last a lifetime.
