HELP USA has been an innovator since our founder, Andrew Cuomo opened our first residence in 1986. Under his leadership, HELP USA created our supportive housing model, packaging services with shelter, opening HELP 1 for homeless families in Brooklyn.

Since its founding, HELP USA has combined innovation with management excellence, becoming a national leader in both homeless prevention and a developer of permanent supportive housing for special needs population such as homeless families, veterans, and survivors of domestic violence.

HELP USA’s 38 locations serve communities across the United States including Nevada, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City, Buffalo, and Washington D.C.

The impact of HELP USA’s work is to build empowered communities where everyone has a place to call home.
