What We Do

A Legacy of Healing and Hope
Since 1917, Boys Town’s mission has been to​ give at-risk children and families the love, support and education they need to succeed. Because we firmly believe, that regardless of background and circumstances, every child and every family has the potential to thrive.

Who We Help

​​​​​​​​​No Child's Life Should Be Hopeless
Imagine growing up with absent parents, surrounded by gang violence and rampant drug activity. Imagine having to steal food just to survive day to day. These are the kids who have slipped through society’s cracks. The sad part is, just like all children, they have potential – they just need hope and someone to believe in them. Boys Town provides both to thousands of at-risk children each year.
