Our Work

HELP USA believes that housing is only the beginning. Once people no longer have to worry about having a place to sleep at night, they can focus on building better lives for themselves and their communities. We offer people facing poverty and homelessness safe homes as well as the support they need to live independent, fulfilling lives.

Building affordable homes

We provide safe, affordable apartments for people who are low-income or who have experienced homelessness.

Providing emergency shelter

When people lose their homes, we offer them a safe place to stay and help them find new homes as quickly as possible.

Strengthening vulnerable communities

Our clients can receive homelessness prevention services, job training, youth enrichment, trauma counseling, and more.

Help us do more for people facing poverty and homelessness.


Who We Serve

Everyone deserves a place to call home. That’s why we provide customized programs and housing for people from all backgrounds, especially those at a higher risk of experiencing homelessness.


Single Adults


Survivors of Domestic Violence
