Since 1973, Olive Crest has transformed the lives of over 60,000 abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families. We work tirelessly to meet the individual needs of kids in crisis by providing safe homes, counseling, and education for both youth and parents. Our many innovative programs reflect our conviction that strengthening the family is one of the most powerful ways to help heal children. With unwavering compassion, the Olive Crest family maintains a lifelong commitment to the youth and families we serve even after they have graduated from our programs.
Established, proven, and respected, Olive Crest has proudly served the greater Orange County area since its inception in 1973. In 2000, we extended our outreach south to San Diego. Our office locations in Santa Ana and San Diego provide a broad spectrum of care to children and families throughout Orange and San Diego Counties.
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.”®
