You Can Help Solve Homelessness

Hillcrest solves homelessness one family at a time in the greater Kansas City metro area. We offer homeless families, singles and youth a disciplined educational program within a caring, supportive environment. Unlike many organizations whose focus is one-time or emergency care, Hillcrest’s primary objective is to move clients from homelessness to self-sufficiency by addressing the total life situation of the homeless families we serve. At any given time, there are approximately 100 households in our care. Hillcrest provides and operates the following:

• A transitional housing program that focuses on moving clients to self-sufficiency within a 90-day time frame.
• A 24-month youth housing program for homeless teens and youth adults, ages 16-24, who have an educational goal.
• A rapid re-housing program for those in need of immediate housing.
• Two robust thrift stores that act as a primary funding source for our ministry along with providing housewares for our programs and clothing and resources for our families.
