Fostering

A strong family for every child…this is Olive Crest’s vision.

With over 400,000 children in the welfare system, the need for communities, churches and individuals to provide safe, loving homes is the solution. So many precious kids’ lives are hanging in the balance.

Together, we can make a difference.

The best way for children to heal from abusive home situations, is within the care of a strong and stable family. Whether it is short-term or long-term, providing safety, and consistency to help kids find their footing is the recipe for transforming lives.
