Our Story

Founded over 70 years ago as Hoosier Boys’ Town, Campagna Academy today continues as a mission-centered, vision-inspired, “for-impact” organization that still believes the world can be changed one child at a time. We give at-risk children a second chance in life, providing safe housing, therapeutic treatment, foster care, and education. In individual therapy, clients receive weekly individual sessions that are typically an hour to an hour-and-a half in length. Clients also attend weekly skills group. Unlike with regular group psychotherapy, these skills groups emerge as classes during which clients learn four sets of important skills – Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance. Additionally, we are the only certified child welfare organization in NWI Indiana that offers specialized residential treatment to children and adolescents with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD). Our life-changing programs impact over 500 youth and families annually. Throughout our history, we’ve also recognized the importance of community and have worked diligently in developing and maintaining strong relationships that advance our mission of Restoring Hope and Building Dreams. Any charitable giving helps up impact the lives of hundreds of at-risk children in ways that allow them to grow into successful, happy, and productive adults, with new dreams and new beginnings.
