About Mission Month

During Mission Month, take an art journaling class with our Art Therapist. Participate in a mindfulness workshop with FloCrit teen moms and staff. Join us on campus for socially distanced volunteering. Tune into our second virtual FloChat to connect with a panel of our teen moms as they talk about how they juggle school, parenting, and being a teenager during a pandemic. Host your own virtual event or fundraiser to share why you support FloCrit with your family and friends.

October 10, 2020 would have marked the 16th Annual Miles for Moms. Even though we cannot gather to run and walk the streets of the Valverde neighborhood around the FloCrit campus, we will continue the tradition of celebrating our teen moms and their families with Mission Month.

Connect

Join us this month for all things FloCrit. Plug into FloChats, a panel discussion with FloCrit moms; drop in to our weekly art journaling series with FloCrit’s Art Therapist; invite your friends and create your own informal info session to share why you support FloCrit.

Come to a Mission-Related Event
Volunteer

Take action throughout the month. Join us on campus to make our weekly food bank and basic needs distribution possible. Look for the purple calendar squares to see how volunteering at FloCrit can fit into your schedule.

Be a FloCrit Social Media Champion

Make an impact and share your passion for Florence Crittenton Services during Mission Month by being one of our Social Media Champions. In a time when gathering in person is difficult, digital media remains one of the best ways to introduce new folks to the stories of FloCrit teen moms and their kids. When you share these stories, you encourage giving and ensure our community can continue to educating, preparing and empowering teen mothers and their children.

We’re looking for three to five enthusiastic and engaged individuals who are committed to growing the reach of FloCrit, using Mission Month as a catalyst, and who are dedicated to share the stories of FloCrit teen moms and their kids throughout the year.

What you’ll do

  • Follow: Make sure you’re following Florence Crittenton Services on all social media platforms you use regularly, including Facebook (@FloCritCO), Instagram (@flocritcolorado), LinkedIn (Florence Crittenton Services of Colorado), and Twitter (@FloCritCO).
  • Amplify: Create a unique post and/or amplify (by sharing and/or commenting on a Florence Crittenton official post) twice weekly throughout October on each of your chosen platforms.
  • Personalize: Make one post during Fundraising Week (October 4 -10) dedicated to your personal reasons for supporting FloCrit, and encourage your followers to engage by giving and/or following Florence Crittenton official social media channels.

Who should do this:
Anyone with an active social media profile who also supports FloCrit! Are you interested in being a Social Media Champion? Contact Julia Goodman, Marketing and Communications Coordinator, at jgoodman@flocritco.org.
