Florence Crittenton Services
Throughout the year we collect diapers, baby formula, gently used baby toys, board books, and other baby items for distribution to the local home for single teen mothers.
The mission of Florence Crittenton Services is to promote health and hope for tomorrow’s children by providing comprehensive health, educational and social services for single pregnant and non-pregnant adolescents and women, mothers and their babies in the foster care system.
Florence Crittenton Services was established by Charlotte civic religious leaders in 1903. After an article in the news was published detailing the suicide of a single and pregnant 16-year-old, citizens joined forces to provide a safe place and understanding, rather than condemnation, for single, pregnant women.
