Our Mission

Olive Crest is dedicated to preventing child abuse, to treating and educating at-risk children, and to preserving the family . . . “One Life at a Time.”®

For over 40 years, Olive Crest has provided emergency and long term shelter and care for abused, vulnerable and neglected children. We help families in crisis. Our key focus is on child abuse prevention. We provide homes for children, teens and aged-out youth, adoption placement and support, educational support and services, independent life skills training and mentoring, counseling and mental health treatment, and family crisis intervention. Our vision is to ensure every child has a strong family, and our ultimate goal is to restore broken families. Every day Olive Crest, with the support of donors and caring community members serves 3,000 children and families in need.
