Chloe's Story*
Beautiful smiling hispanic girl with room for copy space
"Hello, I am Chloe. I am in DCS custody because my mother was into substance abuse and my dad was in trouble for domestic violence. My parents fought a lot, drugs were apart of my family and mental illness. 

They were never married so no one had custody papers. I had to choose who I wanted to live with. I picked my dad. This has been tough on me and I ended up at Florence Crittenton.

Being here, I have learned that other girls have similar experiences as I do, but we all different. We have all survived a lot of pain, heartache and struggles. We are all stronger people for our experiences. Florence Crittenton is helping me get through my struggles and make me stronger."

Bashas' Family of Stores join forces to help at-risk girls
in Maricopa County
Florence Crittenton is honored to announce that Bashas' Family of Stores has selected them as their Charity of the Month for March 2017. During this month, Bashas' and Food City shoppers in Maricopa County will be able to add an extra dollar or more to their grocery tab to support Florence Crittenton, the second-oldest social service agency in Arizona. Bashas' shoppers can become an integral part in helping us provide safety, hope and opportunity to the girls and young women of Arizona.

Every month, Bashas' selects a charity for the great work they do in the community and features them in their stores for an entire month. As a part of Bashas' Charity of the Month program, shoppers have the opportunity to give back to a local nonprofit as they check out in one of the stores. One hundred percent of these donations made through a Bashas' cashier will go directly to Florence Crittenton, so the agency can continue providing their services, basic needs and education to girls, ages 10 to 25, in dire need of the community's help.
