Boys Town

Boys Town has been a national leader in the care and treatment of children since its founding more than 100 years ago by Father Edward Flanagan.

As one of the largest nonprofit, nonsectarian child and family care organizations in the country, Boys Town provides compassionate, research-proven treatment for behavioral, emotional and physical problems.

Boys Town’s outreach is national in scope, with treatment and care programs at more than a dozen sites across the country. We believe that every child, regardless of circumstance, deserves the opportunity to succeed. We also recognize that every child is an individual with unique needs. That’s why, over many decades, we have developed a distinctive, research-based approach to achieving our vision that has proven successful for tens of thousands of children and families.
