The Boys Town National Hotline is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is staffed by specially trained Boys Town counselors, including Spanish-speaking counselors and translation services for more than 140 languages.
"We encourage people to contact us by phone if they are in any danger, or if it’s a really serious issue," the site states. "Talking on the phone can provide more immediate help, but we do know that sometimes you might be more comfortable contacting us via chat, text, or email."
If you would like Boys Town to help your child, please call admissions at 1-800-989-0000 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
