HELP USA takes a comprehensive approach to solving homelessness. We deliver programs to prevent people from becoming homeless. We develop affordable housing so people have a place to call home when they leave homelessness. And we offer supportive services that help people transition out of homelessness.
Housing and Homes
The first step to ending homelessness is to provide stable housing. HELP USA provides award-winning housing that people can confidently call home.
HELP USA provides housing as a foundation, then delivers programs and services that keep people safe, keep people healthy, and build people’s skills.
