Many children, after aging out of the foster care system at age 18, are left without resources, connections, or a supporting adult to help them navigate the challenges of independent life. 60% become effectively homeless, and only half have gainful employment by the age of 24.
Olive Crest is a lifelong resource for our youth. Kids know that they can come back to us for guidance, help, and support. Some of the services we offer to kids and their families include:
A comprehensive program that provides foster youth 15-24 years of age with the support and training that is necessary to become independent and successful adults.
A ministry to address the spiritual needs of our youth by providing activities and opportunities to encourage them to explore this area of their lives.
A strategy to “wrap” an at-risk family with support, coaching and mentorship. Each member of the family can be assigned an age-appropriate “partner” whose primary purpose is to walk side-by-side with them in the midst of their crisis.
Our mental health staff provide special services such as crisis intervention, therapy, psychiatric assessments, medication management, and Therapeutic Behavioral Services.
