Florence Crittenton’s Residential Program and Community Services are aimed at wrapping services around young families and providing them with the tools & support needed to be successful.  Our philosophy is that we have the opportunity to change the parenting behavior of these young parents, but also positively affect the outcomes of the next generation in their babies.

The treatment model we provide is primarily relationship-based, where the emphasis is on building and facilitating mutually respectful, safe and trusting relationships.  This creates a therapeutic climate that not only teaches, but models and fosters healthy and appropriate relationships, and sets the stage for clients to safely work through the issues and challenges they may face.

A primary focus of this approach is  centered around healthy bonding and attachment in relationships. This becomes especially important as  parents  prepare to create a safe and healthy environment for themselves and their babies.
