LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — According to a study from Child Trends, more than half of Nevada children go through at least one adverse childhood experience, including neglect or abuse.

Olive Crest is one of the many organizations in our valley working to prevent this by providing support to families.

Since it began about four decades ago, Olive Crest has helped nearly 3,000 children in several western states.
