The purpose of Hillcrest Thrift Store is to generate an additional revenue stream to support the work of the local nonprofit Hillcrest Transitional Housing.
Hillcrest Transitional Housing
Hillcrest Transitional Housing is a non-profit 501c3 with four affiliate locations in the greater Kansas City Metro area (Clay County, Eastern Jackson County, Platte County and Kansas), supported by the local community and community service volunteers.
The Mission: To be a transitional housing program providing a Christian environment that helps homeless families become self-supportive, self-reliant contributors to society.
The nonprofit’s primary program focus is moving families from homelessness to self-sufficiency within 90 days. In exchange for rent/utility-free housing, residents are required by written agreement to work full time, follow the program guidelines, and attend volunteer taught classes in life skills, employment, community living, and budgeting. In addition to housing and life-skills counseling, Hillcrest provides the following through a network of community support: auto repair/donation, food pantry, medical assistance, dental work, GED classes, haircuts, glasses, school clothes, work uniforms, etc.
Recognized for “best practices” in transitional housing with the National Alliance to End Homelessness, Hillcrest’s greatest accomplishments are best seen through our 95% success rate of transitioning graduate families to self sufficiency.
