Who We Are - Helping Families Cross the Finish Line
Chicks in Crisis is an essential pregnancy and parenting resource center for moms, dads, children and birth mothers with a mission of helping ALL families cross the finish line. Located on a 2.5 acre ranch in Elk Grove, CA, Chicks in Crisis is a bustling, yet peaceful oasis, offering services to anyone who is parenting and enrolled in school every 30 days with diapers, wipes, formula, hygiene and clothing as long as family size is maintained and no subsequent children are born while needing our assistance. Education is the key! The ultimate goal at CiC is that our clients are able to support their families without outside assistance; therefore, the finish line is graduating high school and going on to finish college or a trade school so that they become responsible, self-sufficient parents and are able to raise their children in a healthy, happy enfirnoment.
Working together, we give those with little hope the tools and resources for a better life so they can "cross the finish line".
