About Charles Crittenton – A Champion of Hope
In the early 1890’s, Florence Crittenton was born, lived a few short years and tragically died of scarlet fever. Charles, her grieficken father, in an effort to ease his pain and preserve his daughter’s memory, made a decision that has evolved into an extraordinary mission.
For twenty-five years, Charles Crittenton traveled throughout the United States helping communities set up homes offering care and understanding to girls and young women who needed “relief, protection and reformation.” He was a true champion of hope.
In 1896, with Crittenton’s assistance, Arizona’s Florence Crittenton Home opened near the railroad tracks in Central Phoenix.
