Florence Crittenton Services of North Carolina

was established by Charlotte civic religious leaders in 1903. After an article in the news was published detailing the suicide of a single and pregnant 16-year-old, citizens joined forces to provide a safe place and understanding, rather than condemnation, for single, pregnant women.

Philanthropist Charles Crittenton donated funds and requested that the program be named in memory of his daughter, Florence, who died of scarlet fever at the age of four. Since that time, nearly 39,000 young mothers and their babies have received medical/prenatal care, social services, education and career services, adoption and parenting support services at Florence Crittenton Services. Florence Crittenton Services is one of the largest comprehensive residential programs for at-risk and pregnant girls and women in the United States.

Charitable giving is the bedrock of Florence Crittenton Services. It was how they started. It is how they’ve grown in the last 100+ years. And now, even in this difficult economic climate, it’s how they’ll continue to thrive.
