Olive Crest transforms the lives of at-risk children through the healing power of family. Olive Crest’s philosophy of unconditional care is life-long and imprints a sense of security that is often expressed throughout our hallways with pride: “Once an Olive Crest kid, always an Olive Crest kid!” Through the healing power of family, and forever part of the Olive Crest family, our children can feel confident in the knowledge that they will always have a family to rely upon. Over 70,000 children and families are part of the Olive Crest family for life.
They have provided untold support for me, my family and the foster kids that have been in my care. I've also seen the amazing work they do across Western Washington.
They offer the following programs: foster care services, intensive treatment foster care for emotional and behavioral needs that exceed the skills of most foster families, safe families for children (supports families try to keep their kids who are in jeopardy of being removed from the household), Fostering Together (support for foster families), mental health services and independent living services for youth 15-21 years old.
