GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Come mid-February, Boys Town of Central Nebraska’s Highway 281 location will reopen its doors to the public and families it provides for with a new interior appearance and offered services.

In April of 2020, the intervention and assessment program closed its building and moved those services into the Highway 281 location.

“It really allows kids and families to stay together under the same roof in their homes and be successful as a family without having to be removed from the home,” Megan Andrews, the Senior Director of Program operations, said.

Not only did Boys Town add a behavioral health clinic to 281 it also established in-home services and foster services to the building. Andrews says the goal is to now provide assistance and catch any issues earlier than they otherwise would have.

The clinic has been doing in-home telehealth meetings and conferences but Andrews believes getting people back in the doors will make it easier to continue on the mission of Boys Town.

Doors to the new building reopen on Feb. 15.

More information on Boys Town’s services, including resources and information on fostering can be found on Boys town’s website.
