Your donation means everything to local children.

Everyone that walks through our doors has a different story, and an unique set of challenges, but they all share one thing in common—they need your support, too.


Whether one donates their time, treasure or talent, please know that every gift is needed and always appreciated. 

The impact you can make

When you give to Crittenton Center, you are providing some of the most vulnerable kids in our community with hope for a brighter future.

Together, we are building better tomorrows for kids in need. Donate today to help us make a difference in the lives of children in our community.

Charitable gifts are vital to our organization.   Budget cuts can quickly affect services we provide, leaving the children and families we serve vulnerable and at high risk for neglect, abuse, and homelessness. 

For example, without scholarships for our childcare development center, families would be pushed out of the workforce or be unable to further their education, which only reinforces the cycle of poverty and despair.

How we are funded:
57% Government funding (51% state and 6% federal)
26% Grant funding
7.5% Private pay (child development center)
5.5% Fundraising
4% United Way
.5% Endowment proceeds
