Hillcrest Thrift Shop

The Hillcrest Thrift Shop opened it's doors in 2008 as an additional revenue stream to help fund our housing program. This store is open to the public to shop and all families in the program are able to shop free of charge to meet any needs they may have while in the program. Graduates of the Hillcrest program are also helped to ensure they have the things necessary for their apartment upon completion of the program based on need through a voucher system. Come be a part of the success of our families by serving at the Thrift Shop!
