Our Shared Mission

Saving Children, Healing Families, Strengthening Communities.

Together, you and I have a mission – to help changes lives of at-risk children so they reach their full potential for happy and fulfilling lives.

Our mission is Tanner, abused and addicted to drugs, who said: “If I hadn’t come to Boys Town, I would probably be in jail or dead.”

Our mission is Carley, rebellious after her mom’s death and shuttled off to relatives, who came to Boys Town and later said: “I’m thankful for Boys Town because they gave me a home.”

Our mission is Josh, born to drug-addicted parents and in and out of foster care before coming to us and said: “Boys Town, it’s helped me so much. I can’t tell them thank you enough.”

Wherever boys and girls are hurting from abuse, addiction, abandonment, and violence, we have a mission. It’s what inspired our founder, Father Flanagan, more than 100 years ago, and it’s what moves us to this day.

Every child deserves a future. And Boys Town provides at-risk children the love, support, and education they need to go out and claim that future.

Together, we are changing the way America cares for kids and families, we are helping change lives.
