How We Can Help

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