Crittenton Centers has been serving all of Central Illinois since 1892. Once serving as a home for unwed mothers, we are now a multi-service organization providing crisis intervention and parenting services to strengthen families. We have three service areas including: Crisis Nursery, Child Development Center, and Family Services.
Crisis Nursery - Immediate Protection Safety Net
We provide no cost childcare and basic needs items, 24 hours a day 365 days a year, to families in a crisis. Our goal is to prevent a parental crisis from turning into child abuse and neglect.
Child Development Center – Transitional Support
We provide high-quality educational daycare/preschool to at- risk children. The parents receiving support have a job or are attending school in order to recieve subsidized daycare based on income and family size.
Family Services – Generational Change
We provide lasting generational change through parent education classes, support groups, family advocates, and individualized home visits so they can be the best parents to their children.
