- Get Involved
We remain committed to providing intensive short-term therapeutic treatment in a residential setting as one component of a broad array of programming for teen girls in need of our advocacy.
Some of the most vulnerable children and youth in our community are the ones involved in 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 that include: 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 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 short-term 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. However, we are open to working with other community organizations or school-based professionals that need assistance finding their clients quality care.
“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 me 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
