Boys Town Intervention And Assessment Services
Changing the way America cares for children, families and communities by providing and promoting an Integrated Continuum of Care® that instills Boys Town values to strengthen body, mind and spirit.
These services provide care for youth who are in trouble with the law, have been removed from their homes and families, and are awaiting adjudication. Many of these youth have been abandoned, abused, or neglected, and suffer from a number of emotional and behavioral problems. We provide them with a safe environment, where we assess their needs and begin to work toward family reunification or other permanent care. Hundreds of youngsters, ages 10 to 18, from all five boroughs of New York City, find help each year through these services at our three Intervention and Assessment Homes – two in Brooklyn and one in Queens. The average length of stay for a child is 30 days.
