Hillcrest Transitional Housing has a proven method to move individuals and families from homelessness and to self-sufficiency. Hillcrest serves over 1,020 children, individuals, and families each year through its five residential sites in Johnson and Wyandotte Counties in Kansas and Jackson County in Missouri. Hillcrest also provides rapid re-housing services in Kansas City’s Northland and in Northwest Missouri.

Hillcrest programs include:

In addition, Hillcrest offers intensive case management for residents that works on solving the root causes of their homelessness; and advocates for action on homelessness, poverty, affordable housing, and hunger.

Hillcrest is committed to solving homelessness for all. Read more about our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion here.

Hillcrest solves homelessness by helping people reclaim their life situations and regain their self-sufficiency.

In our flagship program, clients receive rent- and utility-free housing while agreeing to follow program guidelines, find and maintain full-time employment, attend life skills classes, participate in community living, and follow a strict budget plan. Hillcrest graduates leave the program with the tools needed to maintain their independence and success. Read some of their stories here.

Hillcrest is the most successful program of its kind in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, and has been recognized for best practices by the National Alliance to End Homelessness. Learn more about Hillcrest Transitional Housing here.
