OliveCrest_Logo_final_2_color In this second installment of our blog series Heartitudes, we’ll be featuring Olive Crest, another one of our favorite organizations! Here’s a description of what Olive Crest is all about:

“Since 1973, Olive Crest has transformed the lives of over 60,000 abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families. We work tirelessly to meet the individual needs of kids in crisis by providing safe homes, counseling, and education for both youth and parents. Our many innovative programs reflect our conviction that strengthening the family is one of the most powerful ways to help heal children. With unwavering compassion, the Olive Crest family maintains a lifelong commitment to the youth and families we serve even after they have graduated from our programs.”
