Florence Crittenton Home Reunion Registry
In 1882, Charles Crittenton, a wealthy New Yorker, lost his 4 year old daughter Florence to scarlet fever. This tragedy moved him toward philanthropic work and he started the Florence Night Mission in New York, a safe haven for “lost and fallen” women.
From there the Florence Crittenton Mission was formed and Charles Crittenton traveled across the country in a railroad car donating $500 to each town willing to start a Home for young women and children in need. More than seventy Homes in total were opened.
This website is dedicated to helping those that have a connection with the Florence Crittenton Homes across the U.S.
