Kansas City’s Regional Leader in SOLVING Homelessness

Hillcrest provides transitional housing and other programs that combat homelessness by building the self-sufficiency of families. Hillcrest serves youth, individuals and families throughout the greater Kansas City region 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’s flagship program is a 90-day timeframe in which clients receive rent- and utility-free housing. In exchange for housing, clients agree to follow program guidelines, find and maintain full-time employment, attend life skills classes, participate in community living, and follow a budget plan.

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