In 2021, we are celebrating the people and services that are essential to helping our organization and community thrive. We are talking about our Early Childhood Education Center teachers, who reopened their classrooms as soon as they could to keep the youngest members of the FloCrit community learning and growing. We are talking about our high school teachers who met our moms where they were academically, helping them to succeed, and stayed flexible as school schedules changed again and again. We are talking about our Student and Family Support Program team, who leveraged their relationship-based, trauma-responsive case management skills to meet the evolving and complex needs of our teen families. We are talking about our facilities staff who have worked overtime to make our campus the safest possible place to learn, work, and play.
We are talking about our teen moms, who over the past year have shown incredible resiliency and commitment to their education, their children, and their future. At FloCrit, we know firsthand how essential it is to invest in the youngest and most marginalized members of our community. We also know the limitless possibilities that happen with that investment. And we are talking about you—our community supporters. You are essential to us and the learning, growth, and development that happens at Florence Crittenton Services.
On Thursday, April 8 at 5:00 p.m. we will present live half-hour broadcast event highlighting the essential FloCrit teachers and staff, community partners, and, of course, our brilliant teen moms and their children. We are thrilled to announce that one of Denver7’s most well-known and celebrated anchors Anne Trujillo will be joining us as our anchor-emcee to help tell these stories.
