About Us

Hillcrest Transitional Housing offers 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 families we serve.

The transitional program focuses on moving clients to self-sufficiency within a 90-day time frame; households with more barriers to permanent housing may receive longer term transitional housing assistance. Hillcrest also provides a transitional housing program for homeless young adults, ages 18 to 24, who have an educational goal. This unique program offers housing and supportive services for up to 24 months.

In exchange for rent- and utility-free housing, adults are required by written agreement to find full-time employment, obey program guidelines and attend weekly volunteer-taught classes in life skills, employment, community living and budgeting. Through a network of community supporters and funders, Hillcrest also may provide transitional housing clients with car repair/donation, food, medical assistance, dental work, GED classes, haircuts, glasses, school clothes, work uniforms, etc.

Hillcrest also provides programming and services called Rapid Re-Housing to literally homeless youth, singles & families who are seeking housing in the Northland and Northwestern MO. This program provides case management, budget counseling and financial assistance to move homeless clients into rental housing.
