Adult & Family Transitional Housing

Is Transitional Housing right for you?

Our 90-Day Housing Program

Hillcrest provides a 90-day housing program to help individuals and families gain housing and financial stability. Residents are provided a fully furnished, rent- and utility-free apartment while participating in the Hillcrest program, which includes weekly case management, budget counseling, life skills, and community living. Housing sites are located in Independence, Sugar Creek, and Lee’s Summit in Jackson County, Missouri; in Kansas City in Wyandotte County, Kansas; and in Overland Park in Johnson County, Kansas.

Basic program qualifications

  1. Adults must be able to find and maintain 35-40 hours per week of employment.
  2. Participants must be able to attend 4-5 weekly sessions for life skills, case management, and budgeting. These will be scheduled around work and school commitments.
  3. Participants must be drug- and alcohol-free.
  4. A willingness to follow all program guidelines.
  5. After submitting your online application, you must call the housing site you selected as your first choice within 24 hours. You must then continue with daily check-in calls to confirm you are still in need of the program. Leave a voicemail with your name, phone number, job status, and where you stayed the night before. If you do not call the housing site you picked as your first choice on a daily basis, your application will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list.

    A case manager will contact applicants to schedule an interview. Interviews are scheduled based on the application date and consistency of check-in calls. Average waiting list time varies by housing site, but is typically 8-12 weeks. Please call or contact your local housing site with any questions.
