132nd Anniversary Celebration
October 22, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Crittenton’s 132nd Anniversary Celebration was a smashing success! On October 22, we brought together Crittenton friends and supporters to celebrate our four spectacular honorees, our amazing Crittenton alumnae, and the incredible teen girls at the center of our work.
If you were there, thank you so much for being part of this amazing night. The funds we raised will be so critical in allowing us to continue supporting teen girls in this challenging time. We simply couldn’t have done it without your help and support, for which I am truly grateful.
If you were unable to attend, there’s still time to donate. With your support we will be able to address the mental wellness challenges many of our 600 teen girls are experiencing during the pandemic as we work to promote resilience and recovery.
Although teen girls today face many challenges, we’re proud to report that Crittenton girls are overcoming obstacles and achieving success:
- 99% graduation rate
- 98% grade advancement
- 89% attend a two or four year college
- they are setting and achieving goals
- they are making healthy choices in their relationships and about their bodies
- they are advocating for themselves, each other and communities!
As our Alumna, Yaa shared:
“I felt I was always under attack one way or the other… I’m already a girl, I have to deal with that, I’m already black, I have to deal with that. There were so many things coming at me from such a young age, and I didn’t know how to handle it on my own, so SNEAKERS really gave me a place to deal with those emotions.”
Here’s a message from our girls in their own words.
Thank you, again, for your support.
