Resources and Tools

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.

See below for news articles and commentary highlighting the lives and experiences of girls and young women living at the margin of the American dream, examined through the work of National Crittenton and the Crittenton family of agencies.
