Bricks – 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.

Teens are especially vulnerable to depression, caused by any number of reasons. Uninspired social lives, poor self-esteem, bullying, friction with parents, bad grades – are a few of the factors that can weigh heavily on their shoulders. Teens under these stresses can recover but may need a jump-start — to identify their issues and guide them through steps to lighten their loads. In this message, we remind teens that they have the power themselves to take control of their negative feelings and turn their lives around. We also refer them to our YourLifeYourVoice.org website for more clues on taking their own initiatives to overcome their problems
