Our Services

We transform and restore families, giving them a redemptive opportunity to write a second story in their lives. We believe families can create their best life when they have the tools to do it, and Hillcrest Hope equips them through rigorous education and community in a transformational housing environment. Our graduates leave with the skills they need to thrive as neighbors.
Transformational Housing

Transformational Housing

Hillcrest Hope Transitional Housing & Support is a transformational housing program designed to provide families with rent-free, utility-free temporary shelter and supportive services. Each family works hard to pay off debt, save money and learn valuable life skills.

Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Volunteers are the heart of any organization. It is only with our numerous volunteers that we at Hillcrest Hope can serve our families well. Our volunteers give tirelessly of their time and talents to serve the homeless of Clay County with us. We have both individual and group opportunities available for church groups, Sunday school classes, Boy/Girl Scouts and community organizations.

Thrift Store

Thrift Store

The Hillcrest Hope Thrift Store supports the transformation happening every day at Hillcrest Hope. All proceeds from the Thrift Store exclusively support Hillcrest Hope, raising funds for these families in Clay County. Store donations contribute to the practical needs of the families during their stay in the program, as well as aid the families as they seek their own housing upon graduation.

Our Story

Our Story

Hillcrest Hope is a place of second chances. We transform and restore families, giving them a redemptive opportunity to write a second story in their lives. We do this through rigorous education and curated community in a transformational housing environment.

In our program, Hillcrest Hope families gain the life skills they need to become independent. During their stay with us, families receive rent and utility-free housing. With our network of generous community partners, families also have access to auto repair, food, medical and dental care, GED classes, haircuts, glasses, clothing and more.

In turn, Hillcrest Hope residents are required to work full time, follow the program guidelines and attend volunteer-taught classes in life skills, employment, community living and budgeting. We believe families can create their best life when they have the tools to do it.

Hillcrest Hope graduates leave with the skills they need to thrive as neighbors.
