Crittenton Services for Children and Families is a leading mental health and child advocacy organization helping clients throughout a five-county region in Southern California. Our main goal is to help heal the wounds of childhood trauma, abuse and neglect while doing everything in our power to disrupt the cycle of generational system-involvement. We approach our comprehensive treatment model through evidence-based, trauma responsive, and culturally appropriate programs that include an array of services in the areas of mental health, residential care, and family-based services.
