Cheyenne's Story
"My name is Cheyenne. I'm 16 years old. 

Before I came to Florence Crittenton, I was confused, sad and unable to process my past trauma. I also wasn't able to accept what happened to me or grieve. 

I didn't think I had issues and it was everyone else around me. 

It wasn't until the staff at Florence Crittenton helped me realize the resources available for us. They help not only me but the other girls on campus and show us we can do it ourselves too. 

Now, I am able to make better decisions and respect others. I am learning how to take responsibility of my own actions and actively participate in making myself better. I am also learning how to be more positive toward my peers."
