Crittenton Women’s Union

Crittenton Women’s Union transforms the course of low-income women’s lives so that they can attain economic independence and create better futures for themselves and their families. We provide direct services, perform in-depth research, and advocate for public policy changes that will support low-income women in their journey to economic self-sufficiency.

We would like to encourage our families to read by encouraging mothers to read magazines to their children, and by giving children magazines that they can read and explore on their own. We also hope that the magazines will help our clients who are learning English or working on their own literacy goals. An advantage of magazines is that they are easily accessible, fun and easy for families to bring with them on public transportation or to have in their rooms. They also prove extremely useful in craft projects and for reference when discussing current events.
