Olive Crest works to prevent child abuse


Olive Crest is a non-profit organization here in Nevada with a proven model to help prevent child abuse and neglect. Every 10 seconds in our country, a report of child abuse is made. And, every day… five children die from abuse. These numbers are tragic. And they are very real. Olive Crest will not sit idly by and allow these numbers to persist in our communities. They fight every day to end the cycle of child abuse and to ensure that every child in our care is raised in a strong and loving family. They believe that every child, young adult, and family deserves love, security, and the opportunity to live a fulfilling life free from pain, fear, and isolation.
