Former residents of Lexington's Crittenton home hate to see it go

Joette McCarthy, 61, is among the former residents of Lexington's Florence Crittenton Home concerned that the home is shutting down Nov. 26. When she heard that Lexington's Florence Crittenton Home was closing, she thought of the day in late December 1970 when she arrived there as a terrified high school student. She also thought about the strength she gained when she left.
