Boys & Girls Town of Missouri’s Empowering Youth program was created to address the needs of homeless youth in Southwest Missouri. Our mission is to provide the support and guidance homeless youth need to transition to safe and stable homes. Empowering Youth focuses on the opportunity to create positive change in the midst of crisis. Our goal is to empower homeless youth through access to community resources, a safe environment and a supportive staff.
