Youth Support - National Suicide Prevention Month
September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and we want to take a moment to highlight one of our favorite groups in this space,
Olive Crest is a non-profit organization dedicated in almost 50 years of service in the areas of California, Nevada and Pacific Northwest to helping abused and neglected children. Olive Crest transforms the lives of at-risk children through the healing power of family.
On September 26th, 2021, Olive Crest will be holding its first Awareness Event for Youth Mental Health and Human Trafficking (details below). We hope that you will join us for the event if you are able. But we hope even more that you will keep reading, and discover why this event is so important…
Just a glimpse of a few statistics will show on why this work is so needed...
- About 60%of those caught up in human trafficking
come from the child welfare system. - Suicide is the second leading cause of death
among young people ages 10-19 in the U.S.,
and rates of youth suicide and self-injury hospitalization
are on the rise, especially among younger adolescents (1, 2). - In 2017-2019,
an estimated 16% of California 9th and 11th graders
and 17% of non-traditional students
seriously considered attempting suicide
in the previous year.
These kids need our help.
Tracy Coe of CoeDynamics Redondo Beach involvement with supporting youth has been a long term walk of care. For over 5 years Tracy has partnered with Olive Crest and has specifically supported transitional youth programs. Tracy has done this by leading a variety of Learning Skills programs, mentoring teens and much more. Along with other guests, Tracy will be a panel speaker at the Mental Health and Human Trafficking Awareness Event.
We cannot speak highly enough about the positive effects and the light that Olive Crest Programming and its staff offers to these neglected and abused youth who ultimately are living in a very, very dark world.
How can you be a part of the solution?
There’s a place for everyone!
- pass on the event information (see below)

- volunteer with Olive Crest - consider being a foster/adoptive family
Quoting from the book of Peter, Chapter 4, Verse10: “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” In an area so needed, there is no such thing as too-little support.
