About Us

While ministering to the homeless on the streets of Omaha, Nebraska, Father Edward Joseph Flanagan developed a lifelong interest in young people and their struggle to grow into responsible, productive members of society. Today, with your help, we continue Father Flanagan's mission of saving children and healing families.

Boys Town is also home to parenting and child behavior experts who have developed a wealth of original content over the years that is available for free in our For Parents section. From toddlers to teens, if you have a question you need addressed, chances are we've got an article, video or Q&A on the subject.
