Description

THE ORGANIZATION

Florence Crittenton Programs of SC’s mission is to provide hope, safety, and opportunity to pregnant, parenting, and at-risk young women in order to instill self-worth and self-sufficiency. We value the right of every young woman to obtain the education, skills, and support needed to have a healthy start to life — for both today and tomorrow.

Florence Crittenton has been improving the lives of young women in South Carolina for 125 years. In 1897 a Charleston citizen named Claudia Tharin came across a newspaper article about the suicide attempt of a young, unmarried pregnant woman who had come to Charleston to give birth. Ms. Tharin was so touched by this young woman’s story that she, along with a network of volunteers, provided support and limited residential care in their own homes to single pregnant women and mothers in need. This revolutionary new movement was soon supported by Kate Waller Barrett, MD, one of the first female pediatricians in the United States. Dr. Barrett secured the interest of Charles Crittenton, a New York philanthropist who financed a similar program in New York, which honored the memory of his daughter Florence, who had died at the age of four.  

With the financial support of Charles Crittenton, Florence Crittenton Home and Hospital was born. In 1923 the organization was incorporated as a non-profit organization, and in 1927 Charles Crittenton’s continued financial support led to the development of a residential home at 19 Saint Margaret Street. Since that time, the home continues to be a safe haven for young women and their children.

Until the early 1950s, private physicians donating their services delivered the infants at the residential facility. The Medical University of South Carolina assumed this responsibility in 1954 under the leadership of Dr. Lawrence L. Hester, Jr., Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. During this era, services were focused on supporting a healthy pregnancy and delivery, and identifying a caring family to adopt the newborn.  

In 1976, social work services were established to address the rise in teen pregnancies and the number of young women who intended to raise their children on their own.. These services included counseling and parenting classes.  In addition, Florence Crittenton opened a daytime school program, offering pregnant and parenting teens throughout Charleston County the chance to continue their education without entering residential services. In 1986 the name of the organization was legally changed to “Florence Crittenton Programs of South Carolina” in order to reflect this expansion of services.  

The Family Support Services Program was established in 1997, with eight subsidized apartments for parents and children to address the need for a transitional living program for parents and infants who lacked family and support. To this day, the Family Support Services Program continues to provide rental assistance to families throughout Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties, as well as supportive services to help single parents obtain employment.

Recognizing that girls in foster care were more likely than their peers to become pregnant at a young age, and that the long-term achievement trends of girls in foster care mirrored those of pregnant teens, in 2016 Florence Crittenton expanded eligibility for residential care to girls in foster care who were not pregnant. This addition has led to a greater programmatic focus on self-sufficiency and trauma informed care.

From its inception, Florence Crittenton has worked to ensure a bright future for young women and continues to evolve to meet their changing needs. In FY23, the Board of Directors approved a $2M budget to increase the organization’s capacity to achieve long-term outcomes and expand community-based services for pregnant and parenting youth.
