We sit around the table, Game of Life sprawled out in competitive disarray. The babies are blissfully unaware in peaceful dreamland in their cribs, and all is dark and quiet outside. As the game progresses, playful jabs are spoken to heighten the thrill of chasing down victory. Tonight, we are together. We drink our decaf tea and talk as we play, the game a welcome distraction from having to look eye to eye as we quietly share the dark things: betrayals from those we love most, our shame, the wounds that have cut the deepest. So much sadness in our short collective history. Yet, tonight we are known. Evening extends into night as we swim in the stories. We talk. We laugh. We don’t think of the fear that used to haunt us nightly. We don’t think of hunger pangs or self-preservation. We don’t scramble to find a place to lay our head. In this moment, we don’t suffer or cry or lose hope. Tonight, we are safe.

Spring has finally arrived! If you’re doing some spring cleaning, consider donating your gently used women and children’s clothing to Florence Crittenton! Due to COVID-19, we had to limit our intake of used items over the past year and that has left our clothing closet in serious need of some updates. We are particularly in need of Women’s clothing size Large and up, Maternity clothes size Large and up (specifically summer clothes and leggings), women’s sneakers size 7 and up, and children’s clothing up to size 5T.
We will be accepting donations at the home from 9 AM to 12 PM on Saturday May 1st ONLY. We cannot accept items with stains, holes, or odors.
We hope to see you there and thank you for supporting our young families!
