About Hillcrest Transitional Housing

The mission of Hillcrest Transitional Housing of Kansas is to move homeless families into self sufficiency. 

  • - They provide a rent and utility free apartment to homeless youth (ages 16-20), families, and single adults. 
  • - Their 90 day program for adults resulted in 50 family units moved out of homelessness in 2016, and 10 youth. These families combined to save over $70,000, and pay off $90,000 in debt. Their high accountable program is drug and alcohol free, requires their families to work full time, (students work part time), attend weekly case management, life skills, and budgeting meetings. Those who graduate 
  • - Their program have a 95% success rate over the first year, and an 80% success rate over five years in self-sufficiency.
  • - Their youth program provides a safe and secure environment, requires youth to attend school, and to work part time. 
  • - Their young people can stay up to 20 months in Their program. They have recently expanded their capacity for youth from 11 to 15 units. 

This program is vital in our community as the Kansas City metropolitan area is second in the nation in sex traffic. Hillcrest is a solution!
