Olive Crest


Here in Washington, there are over 10,000 children in the child welfare system. Every one of these kids needs a strong family to protect and nurture them.

They do this within the care of a strong and stable family, whether through short term foster parents, or foster parents looking to adopt.

Tacoma Rescue Mission


The Tacoma Rescue Mission serves Tacoma and Pierce County since 1912. Since 1912 they have continued to serve in the name of Christ, while emphasizing the dignity of each person who enters our doors. They met the needs of those who come to them for help and provide emergency services such as shelter and food to the homeless or hurting; offer self-sufficiency programs to help lift a person from poverty and break the chains of addictions; support prevention programs and share our Christian faith.
