American Cancer Society
Boysville, the Home with a Heart, was founded in 1943 as a result of Rev. Don Holiman’s observation of orphaned, homeless and abandoned boys sleeping in San Antonio’s Travis Park. The local police picked these boys up from the park in an effort to provide some safety and shelter for them. But because they had no other place to take them, the police took them to a detention center even though they had not committed a crime. Holiman knew someone needed to help these boys, and thus Boysville was born.
A major component of Boysville’s program to help boys and girls become successful adults is the Boysville Transitional Living Program. It is designed to assist children throughout high school and beyond. Through the Boysville scholarship programs, high school graduates are assisted through college or vocational training.
