​​​​What Makes Boys Town Different

From children in life-threatening situations to families seeking parenting advice for their toddlers, Boys Town provides uniquely effective and compassionate care to children and families across America. We make a difference that can be seen and felt in changed lives.

The Boys Town Integrated Continuum of CareSM is at the heart of what makes us different, and is how we move children and families toward a place of safety, well-being, and bright futures.

Care for Every Child and Family

Every child and every family is different; each turns to Boys Town at a different point along their path to independence and empowerment. Children and families can access Integrated Continuum of Care services at the level that best suits their needs. As they make progress, they move to higher levels of independence.

Services at the top of the Integrated Continuum of Care provide intensive care to children with critical emotional or behavioral problems. Although those services occur outside the child’s home, Boys Town’s ultimate goal is always family reunification.

Integrated Continuum  

Values You Can Share

A set of fundamental values inspires the Integrated Continuum of Care and enables ​Boys Town to provide highly effective services and programs:

  • 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 the 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, confirm what’s working as well as what’s not, and identify when changes are needed.
