We have boys and girls of all racial, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds, from all over South Texas. Children come to Boysville because of abuse, neglect, abandonment or family disruption. They are basically good kids who have gotten some hard knocks in life. Since Boysville first opened its doors in 1943, we have provided a safe, structured and family-like home for wayward boys. Since 1986 that same care has been extended to girls. Our main concern when considering a child for placement is this: Are we capable of meeting this child’s needs?
