Thanks to the generosity of the Public Welfare Foundation, National Crittenton will partner with states to support their work reducing reliance on confinement and building a robust continuum of supports and services for girls. ACCESS, or Advancing a Continuum of Care – Engagement, Supports, and Services for Girls, is in its early stages, but we look forward to sharing more information on this work as it moves forward. 

While National Crittenton’s work collaboratively leading OJJDP’s National Girls Initiative is coming to an end, this initiative will continue the momentum in the field to address the needs and experiences of girls in the juvenile justice system.
