What Makes Boys Town Different

Boys Town provides uniquely effective and compassionate care to children and families across America. From children in life-threatening situations to families seeking parenting advice for their toddler, Boys Town makes a difference that is seen and felt in changed lives. Our Integrated Continuum of Care SM is at the heart of that difference and is how we move children and families towards a place of safety, well-being and bright futures.

Care for Every Child and Family

Every child and family is different; each one comes to us at a different place along the path to independence and empowerment. Our Integrated Continuum of Care all within the same model of care. Children and families access Continuum services at the level that best suits their needs. As they make progress, they move to higher levels of independence.

When you make a donation to Boys Town, you help provide these children and families with hope-filled futures and renewed dreams delivered through our Integrated Continuum of Care:

Integrated Continuum

Services at the top of the Continuum provide intensive care to children with critical emotional or behavioral problems. While those services occur outside the home, our ultimate goal is family reunification. Your support not only enables us to care for children in need of critical care, but it also provides support services to families in crisis, as well as everyday help to parents struggling with the day-to-day challenges of raising their children.

Values You Can Share

A set of fundamental values inspires the Continuum and enables Boys Town to provide highly-effective care:

  • Safety, Permanency and Well-Being
    The conviction that children and families must be and feel safe in any care setting; helping children and families make positive changes ensures their present and future well-being.
  • Family Engagement
    The notion that families must be essential members of their children’s care team for that care to be supremely effective.
  • Religion and Faith
    A foundation of inner strength to take on life's challenges.
  • Behavioral and Medical Research
    The belief that ongoing, in-depth research should guide leading-edge program development, confirming what’s working as well as what’s not and identifying when changes are needed.

Your support of Boys Town shows others that you share these values and are showing active compassion to struggling families and hurting children.
