Lynn, 2018 Boys Town Client In-Home Family Services, Iowa

“Not only was I dying inside but my children were not doing well. I was terrified and called Boys Town and said, ‘I’m using. I don’t want this life for my children, and I don’t want this life for me.’

For the first time in a long time, I had hope. I had hope that I could become the mother I dreamt of being. When I had my first child, I didn’t dream about being beaten by my husband. I didn’t dream about doing meth instead of taking care of them. But that was the path I took. And I owed it to my children to take a chance and try to make a better life.

When I began this journey, I was insecure about everything and not one time was Boys Town condescending to me. They were always there to answer my questions with patience, support and encouragement. Boys Town has not only been life changing for me, but life saving.”
