Family/Adult Transitional Housing Program

Hillcrest offers a 90-day
transitional housing program for homeless families & adults, providing rent/utility
free housing. The goal of the program is to move families from homelessness to
self-sufficiency, with support services (case management, life-skills,
employment, community living, budgeting), donated services (auto repair,
dental, medical, legal, etc.) and self-supporting services (full-time
employment, reduction in debt, establishment of savings).Hillcrest can house 52 families
at one time in the 90 day program. An additional 13 units are available for
families/adults who may have excessive debt, multiple evictions, or barriers to
housing for up to 18 months. The family/adult program houses an average of 165 households per year.Non-residential services are also
available to program graduates: food pantry, counseling, budgeting, community garden,
bus passes, holiday/back to school adoption. An average of 1,000 individuals, adults
& children, receive these services annually.

Population(s) Served

Hillcrest offers a transitional housing program for homeless youth ages 18-24, for up to 24 months, providing rent & utility free housing within a caring, structured environment. 15 private, fully furnished apartments are dedicated to this program.The goal of the program is to move youth from homelessness to self-sufficiency & independent living, through an intensive network of supportive services (case management, life-skills, employment, community living, budgeting), donated professional services (auto repair, dental, medical, legal, etc.) and self-supporting services (full-time employment, reduction in debt, establishment of savings), while aiding these youth in achieving their educational & personal goals.

Population(s) Served

Individuals/Households receive basic needs items & care including: work uniforms, food, transportation, health & dental care, eye glasses, clothing & thrift store vouchers, bus passes/gas cards, auto repair, legal assistance, rapid re-housing financial assistance, etc.

Population(s) Served

The Hillcrest Rapid Re-Housing program began as a pilot project through the ARRA Stimulus Act in 2007. For several years the program remained small in nature, providing additional financial assistance to households in transitional housing who had multiple barriers to permanent housing. In 2015, Rapid Re-Housing became a stand alone program of Hillcrest Transitional Housing. Rapid Re-Housing assists literally homeless households, including youth up to age 24, parenting youth, families, couples, and single adults, through provision of supportive services and financial assistance, to move from the streets or emergency shelter into rental housing of their choosing. Homeless households work one-on-one with a staff case manager to identify the root cause of their homeless episode, identify barriers to permanent housing, and assist in helping identify appropriate rental housing for the homeless household. Hillcrest provides financial assistance to help the household pay a rental security deposit and up to 12 months of rent, to help stabilize the household in their new rental unit.
