reStart Housing Solutions Center
Located at 8th and Paseo, Kansas City, MO
reStart's Housing Solutions Center is at the forefront of a new approach to working with the homeless in our community: helping prevent at-risk families and individuals from becoming homeless in the first place, or helping to rapidly find new housing for them if they do lose their homes. The HSC provides focused case management services for our clients to help them reach their goals.
The HSC also houses the 100,000 Homes campaign, a nationwide initiative for which reStart is the sponsor in the Kansas City metro area. This program focuses on finding permanent housing for chronically homeless families and individuals. Kansas City became the 131st participating community in the U.S. when reStart added these services in June 2012. Our goal is to find housing for at least 100 persons in our first year of leading this innovative new initiative. For more information on the national campaign, go to www.100khomes.org.
