I received a comment on the recent post, The Florence Crittenton Homes from Jeannette Yeunyul Pai-Espinosa, President of the National Crittenton Foundation:
Thanks Craig for including us here! Today there are 27 Crittenton agencies in 24 states still supporting the empowerment and self sufficiency of young women and their families. Today, Dr. Barrett’s great granddaughter serves on our Board of Trustees and the family legacy lives on. Don’t hesitate to let us know if we can be of support to you in your efforts. You might be interested to know about our Young mothers @ the margin campaign, http://www.AtTheMargin.org, which links digital story telling with a social policy initiative designed to ensure that young mothers have the supports they and their children need to thrive!
In this season, this winter of so much discontent, I would urge you to click on the links, learn about the Foundation’s important work, and consider these young women when you are giving.
