Providing Resources

One of the ongoing challenges is the availability of information about girls and young women @ The Margin. We are a resource for that information which we make available to the Crittenton family of agencies and others. We also provide other resources and tools that support the provision of quality services and the rights of girls and young women @The Margin.

Books and Publications

Find books and articles on young girls and women; trauma and violence; foster care and more.
