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.
