Boys Town Texas to Serve 150 Additional Children

Boys Town Texas recently received federal funding that will allow the organization to serve an additional 100 families/150 children in Bexar County each year for two years. Victims of Crime Act funding is channeled through the Texas Governor’s office to Boys Town Texas through a competitive grant process.

Child Protective Services has agreed to refer cases where children have alleged or confirmed cases of abuse and neglect. The children will not be living in the home with the alleged abuser; many of the children will be living with grandparents or other relatives.

Once a family is referred, the child and their guardian are linked with an In-Home Family Services Family Consultant. The Family Consultant will work with the child and their guardian to ensure safety and a smooth transition and to link the family with needed resources. They will also provide the guardian with essential parenting skills to help with any behavioral issues the child may be demonstrating.

At Boys Town, we recognize that the parent or caregiver is the ultimate treatment agent for children and we hope to strengthen and heal families in our community through our In-Home Family Services program.

Boys Town Texas began offering these services in October 2015.
