Father Flanagan famously said,

"It costs so little to teach a child to love, and so much to teach him to hate.”

Your Gift Makes an Impact

At Boys Town, we love helping youth get a second chance in life. We believe that our residential care treatment model is a testament to what Father Flanagan had in mind for these abandoned youths. But we must admit, stunning numbers like those listed below make us proud of the benefit we provide society. It’s the ultimate Win/Win, the kids win, and society wins too.

The impact your gift makes on the lives of these forgotten children AND the society they become a part of is crucial.
