About Hanna Boys Center
Hanna Boys Center is a private non-profit which provides a residential treatment center/ boarding school that helps under-resourced adolescent boys who come to us voluntarily. Each client has recognized his life needs help and has taken the initiative to change his course. Many are struggling at home, in their community and/or school.
