Mission Statement: SHELTERING, EDUCATING, EMPOWERING children, individuals and families.
Crittenton Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the only Emergency Shelter for Children in Northwest Iowa. The average stay for children is 30-45 days with many staying for months awaiting their next placement. Crittenton Center is contracted with the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) to shelter at-risk children (aged infancy – 17) who require a safe and nurturing environment. The children who stay in Crittenton's Shelter have behavioral and mental health needs, as well as a variety of medical needs, which often require constant supervision and attention. On average, Crittenton’s Shelter serves 300 children annually.
