Student Testimonials

“Florence Crittenton has helped me and my daughter Tierra so much. I think that the whole idea of a Family Advocate is just the best thing ever. My Family Advocate just makes being a mom a lot easier. She helps me with the physical stuff, like housing and applying for things. It’s things that you don’t know where to start, they help you with that.” – Alex M., Student

“It’s very nice to have all those resources in one place, because I don’t have to worry about going to school and who’s taking care of my son. I know that he’s just a little walk away, and that his teachers are very loving and caring towards him. And if I need to do an appointment at the health center, it’s just as simple as the daycare. Everyone at the clinic is very respectful and helpful.” – Lilyanna S., Student

“Florence Crittenton is great—from their legal help, to the teachers, the support, the staff on campus, the Early Childhood Education Center. Everyone is just open, wonderful, and smiling. You’ve never felt so safe in your life. This is my sanctuary. I come here and all my walls come down. I feel like I can do anything. I can put my mind to absolutely anything on this campus.” – Gracie L., Student

“I have had the privilege of working at Florence Crittenton for the past 8 years. I have met some amazing mom’s and incredible young women. Florence Crittenton provides so many great resources for their students to excel academically and as mother’s. Students can participate in after school sports, receive help with legal issues, job readiness, financial literacy, cooking classes and so much more. I am proud to be part of this community.” – Frank Knappe, Family Engagement Coordinator
