Trial by Fire
In the early morning hours of July 14, 2020, one of the resident buildings on Hillcrest Transitional Housing's Lee's Summit campus caught fire. While all residents were evacuated safely and eventually relocated to other Hillcrest units, the building was a total loss. (Read more, as covered by the Kansas City Star, here.)
This building at 505 SW Mission Road was the home of four 1-bedroom housing units for Hillcrest's 90-day transitional housing program. The loss of this building meant that 12 fewer families were served each year.
Our Community Came Through!
We are so grateful to those in the community who rallied around us in our time of need! Thanks to your generosity, Hillcrest was able to Rebuild 505, which it completed in December 2021. We are now at full capacity again, and can't wait to see the lives that are changed through our rebuilt 505 building.
