Imagine a world where entire communities stepped up to help raise future leaders? Where neighbors wrapped around each other to provide support for one another’s kids?
This is the vision of Crittenton Services of Greater Washington and Siobhan Davenport. The goal is to be out of business because the community – from neighbors, to businesses, to schools, and churches – are surrounding the youth to help raise them up into adulthood for a thriving future. It’s a big, bold, and brave vision.
