The National Crittenton Foundation (TNCF) has long shared the struggle that many face to define the depths of the challenges and the invisibility of marginalized girls and young women in the United States. This is crucial if we are to advance policies and programs that support the needs and potential of marginalized girls. TNCF believes that ACE brings the challenges they face to life through a simple ten-item survey and because everyone has an ACE score it enables us to relate to each other in that context.
Today, April 19, 2016, The National Crittenton Foundation (TNCF) celebrates our 133rd Anniversary. We pay tribute to the advocacy of Charles N. Crittenton opening Florence Night Mission, the first Crittenton home in 1883, as the beginning of the Crittenton social welfare movement dedicated to the needs and potential of the most marginalized girls, young women and women in communities across the country.
America loves a scandal, but America hates a struggle. While our country rages over abortion rights and access to contraception, the Florence Crittenton Programs of South Carolina are quietly providing sanctuary and real-time assistance to the most vulnerable members of society — low-income single women and their children.
