The National Crittenton Foundation
March 17, 2011

I run a blog for young mothers, helping them overcome the day-to-day challenges of being a young parent, and find the joys that come with this new responsibility. Back in 2009, I was looking to "give back" and host a fundraiser on my blog, preferably to an organization that helped young mothers.

I found the National Crittenton Foundation and fell in love. Their services are outstanding, and I loved how they told their story through their clients' lives. I participated in the organization's 2010 annual meeting and was blown away by the passion and dedication of their staff. I was so inspired by their knowledge and devotion that I decided to go to graduate school to get a degree in Family Studies. This organization is the real deal and I am SO glad they are around to do the work they do. It is so necessary.
