What We Do

Crittenton promotes healing, hope, and empowerment through education and comprehensive physical and mental health services. Our focus is on maternal health and support for girls in foster care.

Our services include: a safe place to live, counseling, access to health care, parenting support, education services and vocational training, nutrition education, early child development education, adoption support, and case management all from a trauma-informed perspective.  We have three residential programs:

  1. Maternity: Serving women and girls of any age experiencing homelessness
  2. Sarah's House: Mother-child program serving girls and young women in foster care who are parenting 
  3. Legacy Hall: Serving teen girls and young women in foster care with a focus on independent living skills

Additionally, we have one follow-up care program called the Aftercare Parenting Education Program (APEP).
