Our Stories

Our clients both past and present are at the center of all we do at Crittenton. To hear their stories is to understand just a little of the incredible transformations taking place each day. They reflect life-altering challenges and obstacles that our clients, many of them just adolescent girls, have overcome ranging from trauma, neglect, and addiction, to sexual abuse. Various milestones they have achieved are taken for granted by many, and yet have been transformational for many of the women and girls in having the chance to start anew.

We honor these clients as we share their stories, and we are glad that we can be a part of their journey to a better tomorrow.
