Hear from Kenisha at Hillcrest

All names have been changed. This story was written by a representative at Hillcrest Transitional Center.

“Kenisha and her three children went through the 90-day program at Hillcrest and took the Positive Parenting class through Lee’s Summit CARES. She graduated and stated that going through Love and Logic helped her become a better mom. She is a single mom and said her focus has become her children and not dating or getting married. Kenisha is the only parent at Hillcrest that has a 2-year-old that is potty trained and her house is spotless because her 2yr old, 6yr old, and 10yr old all have chores, and this keeps their house in order. I also invited her back to our Graduate program, so she will stay at Hillcrest for 12 more months and is currently working with Habitat for Humanity, so she will transition into a home. Kenisha is a great success story here at Hillcrest, her children are amazing, and she is an amazing mom.”
