Who We Are
Florence Crittenton Services is a Denver nonprofit with a mission to educate, prepare, and empower teen mothers and their children to become productive members of the community.
Florence Crittenton Services pioneered a nationally recognized trauma-responsive two-generation program model that helps teen families break the cycle of poverty through education, health and wellness, and economic and social asset building.
Our campus is a full-service family resource center that includes an Early Childhood Education (ECE) Center, the Alethia E. Morgan, MD Health Center, and, through our 36-year partnership with Denver Public Schools, the on-site Florence Crittenton High School. On our new campus, we have extended our programming to offer services for teen families year round.
We are part of the Ascend Network, a prestigious group of two-generation approach leaders and organizations working to influence practice and policy change, and we were instrumental in establishing the Colorado Teen Parent Collaborative, a statewide group of organizations which raises public awareness, shares resources, and advocates for public policy to benefit teen parents and their children.
