Description
Boys Town:

Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders, innovators, and hope for the future. While some children have many opportunities to shine in these areas, others don’t, because they are struggling to survive poverty, abuse, neglect, and families in crisis. Regardless of a person’s background, race, or religion, Boys Town believes that everyone deserves the chance to reach their full potential.

Unfortunately, even with the many young lives we save and change, there are still far too many boys and girls who could benefit from our help but don’t know how to find it. We hope you can help increase awareness to those youth (and their families) who need the unique assistance our Hotline services provide. 

We have grown to become a national organization that reaches communities from coast to coast, and our scope has expanded to include in-home family counseling, health care and programs to rebuild at-risk schools.

One of our services, provided free of charge, is the Boys Town National Hotline®, a 24/7 crisis hotline for kids and parents. It provides a website specifically for teenagers called www.YourLifeYourVoice.org .  For 30 years, the Boys Town National Hotline® and its extended services have been answering the call when children and parents need immediate, professional, and compassionate assistance, answering 150,000 calls, emails, texts, and chats a year.

Happy Place

In this animated spot, a teenage girl – sitting up on her bed – shares with us how trying and tedious her world has become after being cooped up at home for so long. During that time, her parents have “not been themselves” and her young siblings have become annoying “little creatures.” Her emotions are visually dramatized by her bedroom walls seeming to close in on her. She then shares, “If this sounds like your house, try going someplace new– yourlifeyourvoice.org.” She adds, “It might not get you out of the house, but it could help you find a little more breathing room…” as her walls then relax out again and she engages her little siblings with some happy ticklings.
