- Get Involved
Some of the most vulnerable children and youth in our community are the ones affected by the foster care and juvenile justice system.
Therefore, it is imperative to our mission that we continue to deliver trauma-informed, strength based, gender responsive, and culturally appropriate services that adhere to the ideals of positive youth development.
Our priority is to help our clients regain resiliency, stability, family reunification, or assist them with a safety and transition plan into an independent living setting if appropriate.
We are also known for our specialty residential programs including: Co-Occurring Disorders and Substance Abuse Treatment, an on-site Continuing Education Program (Dr. Kate Waller Barrett Academy) a Commercially Sexually Exploited Children Treatment Program (Crittenton’s Insight Program), and the one program that started our mission in Orange County, Calif. our Teen Mom and Baby Therapeutic Treatment Program.
Should you have any general questions about our residential treatment center please feel free to connect with our intake department during regular business hours Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST. We will do everything in our power to provide you with the answers you need, or refer you to an appropriate agency that may be able to assist. *Please note that we primarily work with various governmental agencies throughout California responsible for the well being of system-involved youth.
“I’m a former client and I can honestly say Crittenton changed my life. I was on the verge of becoming a dropout and the staff gave me hope and pushed me to graduate high school. They gave me my first job and showed my how to maintain a work ethic. Those skills have served me well in the real world, and I can never say ‘thank you’ enough for the love and confidence I was given here….they loved me when I couldn’t love myself.” Cote Lucero – Former Residential Services Client
