Crittenton Services for Children and Families is a non-profit child welfare and behavioral health agency that has a proven 50 year service track record of empowering the most vulnerable system-involved children, youth and families. We are proud advocates and promoters of a trauma-informed care approach within all of our mental health programming efforts that can best lead to breaking the cycles of abuse, neglect and continued system-involvement.
Our team has a high level of education, training and experience that operates 24 hours a day / 7 days a week providing intensive mental health treatment interventions; around the clock shelter care; comprehensive community based family counseling services; and other support services for the clients in our care. In addition, we also have a continuum of care program model for clients that are in need of a more holistic treatment approach that addresses unaddressed childhood trauma in a culturally sensitive and gender-responsive environment.
