Charity Partners


After Dr. Donald and Lois Verleur provided a home for four teenage girls, they became inspired by the olive tree in the front yard, and the idea of a family crest. Olive Crest, a name symbolizing “peaceful family,” was born.

Today, more than 40 years later, Olive Crest has grown to become a leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse, serving nearly 3,000 children and families each day throughout California, Nevada, and the Pacific Northwest.

Though four decades have passed, the Verleurs’ original commitment to the individual needs of at-risk youth continues to fuel Olive Crest’s mission to make a difference “One Life at a Time.”®
