Childhood Trauma

Providing resources and tools that support the provision of quality services and the rights of girls and young women

The lack of availability of information about girls and young women is an ongoing challenge. National Crittenton is a resource for research and resources focused on girls, producing original research and aggregating the best and latest information from the field.

We make this information available to the Crittenton family of agencies, partner organizations, advocates, stakeholders, and the public.
