Believe. Achieve. Empower.

Crittenton Services for Children and Families is a child advocacy and mental health organization committed to believing in the potential of every child, youth, and family we serve. Since 1966, Crittenton’s mission has been one of providing solutions that help empower, build resiliency and heal the wounds of childhood trauma. And we will continue to prioritize interventions to best serve those that have experienced the cycles of abuse, neglect and system-involvement.

#FlashbackFriday Advocacy Series: Mental Health Matters

The political capital built on #mentalhealth and #childwelfare issues doesn’t belong to just one political party alone. These issues require the support of all those elected to power, particularly those that say they care about the well-being and mental health of youth. Crittenton’s mission has always been #bipartisan, and when we say we work with everyone – we work with everyone! This image shows a group of elected officials (state, county, and municipal) from #Democratic and #Republican offices visiting Crittenton at one of our #HumanTraffickingAwareness events.
