It’s been many decades since Boys Home was founded, but many of the reasons why it was founded remain. Originally an outreach of the Episcopal Church, Boys Home provided educational opportunities to children in rural Covington. Soon after its founding, Boys Home expanded services to include shelter and care. Since then, Boys Home has provided a supportive environment, including education, shelter, and care to thousands of young men.
Boys Home provides for young men in a healthy, supportive environment. Our programming is designed to offer a life-changing experience. Caring adult supervision, a welcoming school environment, a stable living situation, and opportunities to explore educational and career options help our students become responsible, well-rounded young men. Boys Home is not an orphanage, or simply a school. We provide food, clothing, shelter and guidance, almost entirely privately financed by individuals and churches. Time spent at Boys Home is a fresh chance for a young man to mold his character in positive, meaningful ways.
