When accepted into the Hillcrest program, adults agree to participate in an intensive 90-day program that emphasizes life-skills and financial solvency. Several modules from the Building Strong Families curriculum are utilized in the life-skills education component.
The March workshop topic for Hillcrest residents is "Self-Esteem: Yours and Your Child's".
Registration for the Building Strong Families classes are handled directly by Hillcrest case managers. For general information, contact the University of Missouri Extension Center at 816-407-3490
