Back To Normal

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 .  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.

We hear her thoughts as she shares her feelings. She observes that things have been so “un-normal” with the pandemic and its impact the past year or two, she can hardly recall what “normal” really means. Or which “normal” self she would even recognize. In her bedroom, she poses in front of her mirror in different outfits and different hair styles, searching for the “normal” she used to be.

Ultimately, she casts aside all her old props and accessories and realizes that she’s changed since those pre-pandemic days. She’s been through a lot and it’s made her stronger. Now, her energies should go toward moving forward to discover her “new normal” and not in going back to recover her “old” one
