I have been working with the National Crittenton Foundation for five years. I have partnered with many national non profit organizations over the years and I can truly say this is one of the most thoughtful, impactful, and genuine voices for children and youth that I've ever had the honor of knowing. The most impressive thing about Crittenton is how they listen to the voices of girls and young women to inform their advocacy. They truly have the needs, experiences, challenges, and successes of the individual girls front and center in their work.

The collective voice of the local Crittenton agencies is making a difference in ensuring that girls and young women who are victims of abuse, neglect and sexual violence get the right help at the right place at the right time. They have changed the way I look at the world for the better and given me new hope about the incredible strength and resilience of survivors.

The National Florence Crittenton Foundation has provided outstanding guidance and support to our agency and to the young women we serve who are pregnant and parenting teen mothers. They send us the latest updates on best practices in the field, listen to the voices of our young women so as to better understand needs and challenges; and provide leadership training to young women. I am extremely impressed with their leadership and advocacy on behalf of all young women in this country. They are truly making a difference !!

When I say I am a professionalin this field I mean I am a survivor of human trafficking. I have been out of the life for 23 years and have been advocating for other victims of trafficking for 5 years. I met the Crittenton foundation last year where they had their open house of their office in Portland. Since hen I have built a relationship with them and they have helped our small group of trafficking survivors through allowing us to use their space for meetings and allowing us office space. Our group is called Survivor to Survivor. I have been acoomunity oraganizer for 18 years and this organziation is very impressive. We shared the same philosophy as meeting people where they are as well as their long term dedication to their clients. I have never met a group that has consistently stuck to their mission for 129 years!

I am the CEO of any agency affiliated with The National Crittenton Foundation (TNCF). We are not legally or financially tied to the Foundation, but voluntarily participate with agencies across the county as partners in purpose. In that context, I have been a keen observer of the work of TNCF and can attest to its vision, character, and impact. TNCF consistently matches its actions to its purpose, conducts its activities ethically, and has been constant in its efforts to better the lives of at risk girls and young women. TNCF continues to provide a collective voice for the thousands of girls and young women served, not just by its affiliate agencies, but by all providers working with this population. I am proud to be a partnering agency and personally touched by all they do.

I have had the pleasure of working with the National Crittenton Foundation for the past four years. During this time, I have come to respect this organization as a unique leader in the area of women's empowerment. They have grown tremendously as policy advocates and continue to do a lot with very limited financial resources. More and more they are called upon by our nation's elected officials for their input and opinions in their niche area of marginalized women and girls. Through their member organizations, Crittenton ably represents women of 31 states.

I have represented our local agency to the National Crittenton Foundation for almost 10 years. The National Crittenton Foundation has provided our agency with excellent opportunities to network with similar agencies accross the nation, exceptional professional development and agency development training, opportunities to advocate for pubic policy on the federal, state, and local level, and support for fund raising and program development. On a personal note I was provided training and support to advocate to numerous US Legislative Representatives from my state for a variety of issues that were important to my agency. The training and support was invaluable and allowed me to come back to my home state and continue the effort which included several invited testimonials to my state's House of Representatives and Senate which resulted in positive policy and funding changes. This would not have been posible with out the training and support I received from the National Crittenton Foundation. Additinally, the Executive Director of the National Crittenton Foundation, Jeannette Pai-Espinoza, is a knowledgable, caring , supportive professional that acts as a resource on a variety of levels for all the agencies within the "Family of Crittenton Agencies".

The National Crittenton Foundation advocates for the needs of vulnerable young women. They are the national expert on young women's issues, particularly system-involved young women with histories of abuse and neglect. Their focus is on empowering these young women, promoting evidence-based services which foster self-sufficiency. Their National Campaign "We are not invisible" has been educating the country about the realities of neglect, sexual abuse, and sexual trafficking in our own country.

The National Crittenton Foundation provides guidance and support to the Crittenton Family of Agencies, all of whom serve at-risk young women in the U.S. I am Director of Florence Crittenton Programs of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. The National Crittenton helps us in myriad ways: training in evidence-based modalities, updates on national policy issues that impact our work and clients, conferences to promote best practices, and guidance in non-profit management. The staff are professional and extremely easy to work with. I have never known a better group of individuals who are more committed to help young women.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They sent an expert to evaluate our organization and make recommendations. She spent 3 days with staff and board members and provided invaluable assistance. The Executive Director of the National Crittenton Foundation came to our site and met with management and board members to help assist them through this crisis time. They also provided our board a challenge grant, which helped us move past the crisis and stabilize.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more funding so they could use it to do more good!

The National Crittenton Foundation has made it possible for some of our teen clients to experience how the government works and how they can have a voice in making change. As a result of the Crittenton Foundation's connections we've been able to send 3 young ladies to Washington, DC to advocate for funding for the juvenile justice system, trafficking victims protection act & the shutting down of Craig's list adult service sight, which at the time was one of the avenues that pimps were using to sell teen girls. To witness the bravery these young women display as they share their stories as well as the change that comes from them feeling heard and feeling empowered is amazing and almost beyond description. Thinking about their stories and the resiliency which they display still brings tears to my eyes.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The National Crittenton Foundation has connected our agency with other agencies as well as making a connection with leaders at the national level. These connections have enabled our agency to expand their services as well as providing opportunities for our teen girls to advocate for themselves and their peers on a national level by allowing them to tell their stories.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with more funding so they can expand their great work to more deserving teens.

The National Crittenton Foundation has always been supportive of our Charlotte Florence Crittenton, but never as much as in the past several years. We have benefited in many ways including staff training, programming curriculums and client support.

I've been involved in some of the trainings and have witnessed the benefits in program enhancements.

Ways to make it better...

work on creating more notice before deadlines. Sometimes it is difficult to pull together the necessary information without much notice.
