Crittenton Youth Services – $70,000
The Florence Crittenton Agency’s Crittenton Youth Services (CYS) program provides residential treatment to adolescent females in State custody with severe mental, emotional, behavioral, and substance abuse issues. CYS is an unduplicated, highly structured 32-bed unit for teenage girls who need intensive 24/7 therapeutic support. CYS provides important health-related services for low income youth in our communities who need specialized mental health and addiction treatment services.
New Pathways Academy – $50,000
The Florence Crittenton Agency’s on-site school, New Pathways Academy, works toward improving education and life-skills for vulnerable youth in State custody who are suffering from the residual effects of serious trauma. Students ages 13-18 participate in daily academic courses taught by licensed teachers to recover course credits, obtain a GED/HiSET diploma, and/or graduate from high school while in 24/7 residential treatment. Students also receive extensive out-of-school life-skills courses in order to gain the tools needed for productive futures.
For the young women that The Florence Crittenton Agency helps, “it’s so important to help them heal from [abuse] and gain insight to where they CAN be instead of where they have been.”
