For nearly 10 years, Michael Vasaturo has served as the vice president of the New Haven Terminal. Based in Connecticut, Mike Vasaturo oversees corporate finances, operations, and insurance. He also gives to organizations such as Boys Town.
Established in 1917, Boys Town began as Father Edward Joseph Flanagan’s outreach to homeless children in Omaha, Nebraska. Today, Boys Town provides programs for entire families based on an integrated continuum of care. Beneficiaries of its initiatives range from older children in troubled circumstances to parents seeking guidance for raising toddlers.
Several core values support Boys Town’s services. Foremost of these is the belief that all family members should feel safe in a therapeutic environment, enabling them to make progress toward healing. Additionally, family members should be completely involved in promoting the children’s wellbeing. To accomplish this, Boys Town advocates religious faith to provide spiritual support. Finally, Boys Town conducts medical and behavioral research to determine which methods work best. It also analyzes programs to determine if they should be continued or replaced.
