Hillcrest's Response to COVID-19

Hillcrest Transitional Housing is committed to doing its part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We will adhere to local ordinances and national guidance for our Covid-19 procedures.


At Hillcrest Program Sites

  • Face masks required. Due to changes in local ordinances, face masks are now required on our campuses and at our thrift stores.
