Located in downtown Charleston, Florence Crittenton Programs of South Carolina has been serving the entire state of South Carolina for 114 years. Our mission is to provide young, at-risk pregnant and parenting women comprehensive services to help them become self-sufficient and responsible mothers. We value the right of every pregnant young woman to obtain the education, skills, and support needed to have a healthy start in life – for both herself and her child.

The first Florence Crittenton home opened in New York City in 1883 as the Florence Night Mission to serve “lost and fallen women and wayward girls.” Founded by Charles Crittenton, a self-made millionaire and philanthropist, the home was named after his daughter, who had died at the age of four from scarlet fever. The establishment of similar homes that were founded as Crittenton homes or that would one day become members of the Crittenton family, flourished across the country. By 1914, there were 76 Crittenton homes in the United States, as well as homes in China, France, Japan, and Mexico. Many homes, including the Charleston agency, were founded as a direct result of Mr. Crittenton’s generosity.
