Residential

Our Residential program allows teens to live in a caring environment appropriate for their age, gender, and background. Youth are empowered to choose a positive lifestyle through services that are individual, unique, and implemented with dignity.

Alumni

Olive Crest provides a variety of opportunities for youth who have left our programs and still need a supportive safety net. This special group of adults stays connected and receives support through monthly seminars that focus on enhancing independent living skills to move successfully towards self-sufficiency.

Parent Education Courses

If you’re a parent or a care-giver for a child, chances are you’ve had your fair share of challenging days. Our 6 and 7 week Parenting Education courses are here to help. Learn how to balance discipline and affection, minimize power struggles, communicate effectively and much more. Courses are taught in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Farsi, and Korean. All of our courses are available at no cost to Orange County residents.

Special Medical Care

Every day medically fragile infants are born to mothers addicted to drugs or alcohol. In fact, one baby is born every hour who is suffering from opiate withdrawal. These fragile children will need specialized care to help them recover, and be nurtured toward optimal health, both physically and cognitively.

If you are interested in fostering a child with Special Medical Care needs, please contact Katie Takeshita at 714.543.5437 x1134, or katie-takeshita@olivecrest.org.
