Annual Report

Dear Friend,

Because of your generous support of Olive Crest, thousands of children safely escaped abuse and neglect this year. That’s an amazing achievement.

Even more important, you helped break the cycle of abuse and strengthen families—allowing many kids and parents to be reunited, while other children found their forever homes.  Thank you for all you’ve done for these kids.

This year, with your help, we have:

  • Increased the number of children and families we helped by 39%!
  • Provided 1,262,034 safe days for Olive Crest kids.
  • Achieved 99% stability in foster placements with Olive Crest families-so our children aren’t shuffled from home to home.

We still have much to do—and our 2020 goals are ambitious. But we’re motivated by our love for these incredibly resilient kids. Kids who haven’t had the advantage of positive family influences. Every day more children come to us with tragic stories of abuse, neglect, abandonment, and despair. They need love, encouragement, and constant support. Our whole purpose is to break the cycle of child abuse, so these children can grow to become everything God created them to be.

Your support helps reclaim these young lives through the healing power of family. God bless you for all you do for Olive Crest children and families.
