Impact Statement

Both the breadth and depth of our impact have been profound:

In 2013, we cared for 269 families, including 653 children, in the Tallahassee area. Our Family Homes saved children from the trauma of past abuse and neglect. Our counselors visited the homes of struggling families in order to prevent child abuse and family separation. And we trained and supported foster parents as they welcomed children into their homes. Through this Integrated Continuum, we helped whole families make healthy, sustainable changes.

In addition, the Boys Town National Hotline received more than 4,500 calls, e-mails, and instant messages from communities throughout Florida, including nearly 200 from the Florida Panhandle. And our website Parenting.org helped parents from all walks of life get practical advice for raising their children.

We systematically measure the safety, stability, and well-being of children and families after they leave our care. One year after leaving our Family Homes, 95 percent of children are free of abuse and neglect, 86 percent are attending school and passing most of their classes, and 96 percent have avoided becoming teenage parents.

Among families who receive in-home services, one year later: 100 percent are free of abuse, 96 percent are free of neglect, 92 percent have children living at home, 97 percent of children are regularly attending school, and 96 percent of youth have avoided getting in trouble with the law.

We also measure satisfaction: One year later, 95 percent of youth and 99 percent of families say that Boys Town made a positive impact in their lives.

Going forward, we are increasingly focused on delivering preventative services. This way, we can save children from suffering and save society money by keeping families together. Second, we will continue to innovate and deploy research findings in our work. By basing our approach on evidence, we can ensure that our efforts – and your donations – are invested in truly effective and cost-efficient care.

Background Statement
Boys Town North Florida opened its doors in 1983. We were the first affiliate site of Father Flanagan’s Boys’ Home, a national organization with nearly 100 years of experience in caring for at-risk youth. Today, we combine the timeless values of our founder, Father Edward Flanagan, with cutting-edge behavioral health research.

Like our sister sites across the country, our work in Tallahassee follows the Boys Town Model, an evidence-based approach for treating behavioral issues in children, teaching social skills, and training parents to be more confident and effective. Decades of outcomes tracking have demonstrated its effectiveness. The Boys Town Model:

 – Teaches children – both boys and girls – life-changing skills.

– Helps children and families build healthy relationships.

– Empowers families to make good decisions on their own.

– Cares for children in a family-style environment.
 
– Supports families in religious practices and values.

Boys Town North Florida delivers an Integrated Continuum of Care, including both crisis interventions and more preventative solutions. In addition to our residential Family Homes, we also reach into local neighborhoods with In-Home Family Services and Foster Family Services. Also, teens and parents from all walks of life can get help through the Boys Town National Hotline and Parenting.org, the nation’s No. 1 website for parenting advice.
Boys Town has earned many accolades for effectiveness, transparency, and cost-efficiency. We have earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator six years in a row; only 3 percent of nonprofits have achieved this rating so consistently. We are also accredited by the Better Business Bureau. Our Family Homes, which served as the basis for the Boys Town Model, have been recognized as a promising practice by state and national authorities, including the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
 
While our primary objectives center on the safety, stability, and well-being of the children and families in our care, our mission ultimately aims higher: Demonstrating that our approach works, replicating it at sites nationwide, and bringing it to scale for maximum impact. In this way, like Father Flanagan before us, we will change the way America cares for children and families.

Board Chair Statement

It is my pleasure and honor to serve as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Boys Town North Florida. I was first made aware of Boys Town after attending the Spirit of Youth Gala. After my wonderful experience that evening, I knew I had to get involved further and had the opportunity to join the Board of Directors. I am honored to serve on the Board of an organization with a long history and a strong commitment to helping children and families in our area.

Boys Town teaches children and families about moral and spiritual values, healthy relationships and social skills. Boys Town does not give up on children, and through a time-tested model of care, turns their lives around. We know that providing special services for special kids, will create a more productive and confident adult, resulting in a better community.

As wonderful as this organization is, it is not without challenges. Our country’s economy has not recovered as quickly as we had hoped. It is increasingly difficult to secure funding to continue to do the good work that so desperately needs to be done. Boys Town administrators and our very active board members tirelessly work to find funding sources to be able to help heal the children of our community.

Most recently, Boys Town purchased a 2 ½-acre parcel of land adjacent to the current campus in Tallahassee. Boys Town has named the facility “ART Town” (Art, Resources and Training), and is raising funds to renovate the buildings to serve as a multipurpose center. This new facility will provide much-needed space to provide training, parenting classes and tutoring for children involved in Boys Town programs.

With space available at ART Town, two Boys Town board members are spearheading the development of the Tutoring and Mentoring program. The close proximity of ART Town to Boys Town’s Treatment Family Homes will allow children to walk across campus to attend sessions. ART Town will also provide a common, easily accessible place for tutors, who are community volunteers, to meet with children from the Boys Town’s Foster Family and In-Home Family programs. A dedicated space, free from the distractions created in the home, will be conducive to effective tutoring sessions.

Without continued support from our generous community, many of our children would not get the services they so desperately need. For this reason, we ask for your help in making Boys Town North Florida a continued success in protecting, healing, and growing our community’s children.

Sincerely yours,
Paul Sullivan
CEO Statement/Executive Director Statement
The abuse and neglect of children knows no boundaries. Young people give in to drugs, alcohol and gang life every day. Society’s pressures are tearing families apart.
 
When children and families are hurting, Boys Town North Florida is there, providing hope and healing as a good neighbor in the community. Boys Town North Florida understands at-risk kids and troubled families because we are part of the community. Through our life-changing Integrated Continuum of Care, we provide compassionate, effective care and treatment to those who have no place else to turn.
 
Our Integrated Continuum of Care is a unique set of service levels, each designed to meet the specific, individual needs of youth and their families. Boys and girls can enter Boys Town services at any level and move up or down to other levels based on their treatment needs and progress. This way, youth receive the right care, at the right time and in the right way. The skills we teach at every level of our Integrated Continuum help young people learn valuable lessons that last a lifetime.
 
Boys Town North Florida can offer resources and treatment no one else has because we’re part of one of the country’s largest nonprofit child and family care organizations. We know our programs work because they’re backed up by leading-edge research and more than 95 years of experience. This means we have the evidence that shows children and families are getting better and leading happier, healthier lives.
 
When children and families need real help for real problems, they can count on Boys Town North Florida.
Description
Our Treatment Family Homes are the only evidence-based group homes in Florida.  Married couples called Family-Teachers care for children of all ages, in three homes for boys and two homes for girls, in Tallahassee. Many of these children have suffered the trauma of abuse, neglect or abandonment, and have been removed from their homes. Often, they have serious emotional and behavioral problems.
 
Family-Teachers and their assistants provide compassionate, effective care while meeting the daily needs of each child. In these single-family homes, youth form a family and learn social and independent-living skills that help them find success in school and in their community. The ultimate goal is to reunify children with their families, whenever possible. Children are referred to Family Homes through contracts with state agencies. Consultants are on call 24/7 to provide support and assistance.

Description

Trained Family Consultants work with families that are struggling to stay together, or are in danger of having a child removed from the home.

Consultants work right in the parents’ home, helping them to improve parenting skills, create a safe, nurturing home for children, and use resources in the community to solve problems on their own. Consultants are on call 24/7 to provide support and assistance.

Program Comments
CEO Statement/Executive Director/Board Comments
In today’s era of fiscal instability communities are struggling. Families are floundering. Our children are suffering from an ineffective system that tries to help the abused, but often leaves them at-risk. Boys Town is boldly charting a new course of cost-effective care that saves at-risk children and helps families build brighter futures. Outlined below are some reasons why Boys Town is different than any other child caring agency, and descriptions of the accomplishments that Boys Town has achieved which separate us from other non-profit agencies.
  • Boys Town North Florida (Tallahassee), Boys Town’s first national affiliate location, was established in 1983.
  • Boys Town is so dedicated to helping Florida’s children and families that we operate three affiliate locations in the Sunshine State that provide services that help more than 10,000 children and 3,300 families each year.
  • Boys Town North Florida's Treatment Family Homes Program is the only evidence-based group home in the State of Florida.  (To get the evidence-based rating, you must pass rigorous research and follow-up studies to prove the program works.)
  • Charity Navigator, one of the nation’s largest and most-respected charity rating systems, has awarded Boys Town its highest 4-star rating six consecutive times for the sound management of its finances. Boys Town is one of only 3% of non-profit organizations to have earned this honor.
  • Boys Town has won the America’s Promise Alliance “100 Best Communities for Young People” award multiple times.
  • The Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance has named Boys Town a BBB Wise Giving Alliance Accredited Charity. Boys Town voluntarily participates in a rigorous evaluation process, with standards that go well beyond what government regulators require.
  • Boys Town operates a website totally dedicated to helping teens (YourLifeYourVoice.org).
  • The Boys Town National HotlineSM (800-448-3000) has handled more than 8 million calls and provides assistance to children and parents 24/7, year round.
  • When Boys Town saves a 14-year-old child from a life of crime, drug abuse and school failure, it also saves society up to $3.75 million.
  • Every year, more than 200,000 teachers, students and parents are helped by Boys Town education training programs.
  • Boys Town was founded in 1917 by Father Edward Flanagan and has always been, and remains today, a nondenominational, nonsectarian organization.
Many children today don’t have the opportunity to grow up in a safe, loving, nurturing household. Not surprisingly, many of these children never learn the social skills they need, or get the opportunity they deserve to grow into a well-adjusted young adult. That’s why many of today’s children must be saved, and that’s why Boys Town needs your support.
