Boys Town South Omaha, which provides help for troubled youths and families in the area. They opened a South Omaha office on 2-18-14 in a strip mall near 25th and L Streets to provide easier access to needed services. Among other things, the South Omaha site provides a central location for parenting classes, family visitations with children who aren't living at home for various reasons and office space for in-home family consultants, who previously worked out of their homes and cars. Boys Town has worked with clients in their own homes for a number of years in the neighborhood. The move is in line with Boys Town's new strategic plan, which calls for the organization to work more closely and deeply with residents and groups within the communities it serves.
