Los Angeles

Los Angeles County has one of the largest populations of children in the welfare system in the United States. Over 35,000 children have experienced abuse and neglect, and are without the love of a strong family.  Our community is in desperate need.

Since 1973, Olive Crest has pressed on to find homes and healing for children with broken lives. Together we can end child abuse and ensure that families are whole, children are protected, and the cycle of abuse is broken. Your support and commitment to the children and families we serve is making a long-lasting difference, and lives are being transformed every day.

Restoring Lives Through ...


When she was 13, Cat was removed from her home and came to Olive Crest. After years of neglect, she was struggling at school and had severe social anxiety. Olive Crest was able to guide her foster parents and together they equipped her for the life skills she needed not just to survive, but to thrive. Her schoolwork improved and she earned a spot on her school’s tennis and swimming teams. Although there is much work yet to be done, Cat’s progress is certainly something to celebrate.
